Sweeping Rectangles Jacket
It began with the Sweeping Rectangles Tee.
Moved on to the Sweeping Rectangles Skirt.
Then, the Sweeping Rectangles Dress with Pockets. This is exactly the same as the tee top, just lengthened and pockets added to the contrast panel.
And the final installment in the series is the Sweeping Rectangles Jacket. The jacket is made up of 3 rectangles and it is so very easy to do.
The solid fabric is just a rectangular piece that forms a shrug. The piece that goes around the neck is another rectangle.
The back panel will be sewn across the back of the shrug, across the bottom and will stop at the seam intersection of the sleeve of the shrug. At this point, the remainder of the rectangle will hang free. In our next step we will attach it to the front panel.
The front panel is as I said, just another rectangle. Measure around the opening of the shrug across the neck from one arm seam to the other. Then measure the back panel that is hanging free. This will determine how long the front panel will be. I put a seam in my panel at center back.
The jacket can be worn with pants or a skirt. I made a matching skirt which is also just a rectangle with an elastic waist.
