Angelina Vintage Jacket

| No Comments

I do not recommend this pattern. I barely had enough yarn to finish it (purchased along with pattern), and had to shorten the sleeves considerably so as not to run out. There are other adaptations of vintage bed jackets out there which are probably much better written. That being said, I think this was begun about 3 years ago, and finished a few weeks ago. I do enjoy wearing it mainly due to the fact that I was able to somehow adapt to several design element flaws such as the stair step effect for sleeve shaping - BAD idea. View image In the end, I seamed the sides and sleeves together grafting style with the only seam allowances being those little pesky corners from the steps.


It is warm and cozy, and the subtle variegation in the pink is very pretty.


And vintagey!
