Spring Jackets

Stuck with Winter Blahs and need a perk in your wardrobe? This is a great season for making transitional pieces that can brighten up the end of Winter and carry you into Spring. Jackets are ideal!

Here are two great new jackets made by Mary.

This wild purple leopard pullover is made from Vogue 8854, a pattern actually designed for knits only. Mary broke the rules by using a woven, but went up one size to compensate. This is a fun, simple pattern with a collar that looks good worn either up or down!

Vogue 8839 from Marcy Tilton is cozy but light made in a wool blend with a hounds-tooth check. The drape collar is definitely Springy!

Jackets don't have to be hard! Choose a simple, unlined pattern and some great wool (or corduroy, linen, or fleece) and you'll have a fresh transitional jacket to bring you into Spring with ease.
