The Yanaka Jacket- 20th & 21st May 2023
The Yanaka Jacket from Liesl + Co is a cross between a blazer and a cardigan. This chic, unlined jacket is semifitted, slightly cropped, and includes several unique features: a cutaway silhouette, cut-on sleeves, a sleeve gusset for better movement and fit, and a gentle stand-up collar. With no set-in sleeve and no closures, this style is fun and easy to sew as well as versatile to wear. The cut-out V-notch at the back hem adds a little extra style, and the pattern is great for colour blocking. This style includes cup sizes with added bust darts for C and D cups to help you get a perfect fit.
Lots of techniques to learn including Hong Kong Binding and how to add chain.
The cost of the pattern is included in the workshop price.
