Living Well Talking Pattern™ Released
Yeah – ‘birthed’ another one… my Living Well Talking Pattern™.
This pattern includes TWO jackets and several renditions of each – all based on the concept of a unique center front design. The ‘SWIRL JACKET’ first debuted in the LIVING Talking Pattern™ in 2010 and has been a consistently popular design. It features 3 great buttons and a right front edge that echos the button shape and adding a ‘peeking’ left under lap side. The WEDGE JACKET’ is a newer design that features an added ‘wedge’ at the right Front edge, the lower ribbing utilized for a neck-hugging collar and left Front finish, and a VERY long length, achieved by adding yokes cut from polar fleece. For a sample of how neat my Talking Patterns are… check out this FREE portion that teaches how to add length to the available sweatshirt fabric with a polar fleece yoke at this link:
Just as the original ‘LIVING™ pattern served to raise funds to drill a shallow well through World Vision, this revision of that design has been named ‘LIVING WELL’ with the intent of once again providing water for an African village, but now through a missionary family from my local church. Especially as I created the first grey ‘SWIRL JACKET, I thought of the buttons as those ‘rocks’ in life that Jesus – as my ‘Living Water’ helps me get around.
