Refined & Pathways pattern development

I’m hard at work on “Refined” – the pattern that will give some template patterns for armscye and sleeve cap for both the USA Comfort Color sweatshirts and the Authentic Pigment Sweatshirts. Though obviously more work – it really does make for a nicer fitting jacket. See here how MUCH excess is taken out of the armhole???
End result of what you saw above. That’s the bottom band for the collar. Look closely and you’ll see the circle motif of the batik worked freemotion on the silk doupionni.

I saw a jacket with eensy strips of bias irridescent silk doupioni and so I’m playing with that – which you can’t see very well on this jacket – but it’s there on the princess seams, and other places. That is sna tape on the collar and cuffs too. The button is one of the great Crone Art embellishments that I carry.

My resident ‘help’er – Sasha. She said to tell you she looks good in pink. She’s guarding my favorite tools: Dritz Rotary Cutter – which IS a Kai! , my Kai 5220 shears, and my Chakoner.
Pathways – pastel version. The collar is the bottom band, lettuce edged on the serger. This bright colored one was a joy to work on after all the more subtle colors I’ve been involved with.

I’ve got lots more figuring out to do on the Refined Pattern yet – but it’s fun.

2 weeks til deadline – and I’ve at least 4 more jackets, plus editing all my directions, etc……

Stay tuned 🙂
