Klimt Panel

This amazing, full-width cotton panel print features Gustav Klimt's painting, The Kiss. Rich amber and yellow tones make this a sea of gold, and like the original painting, the print is subtly metallic.

The entire panel is printed in exquisite detail!

Treadlette Tuesday: Julia's Cowl Tunic

Treadlette Julia made this gorgeous tunic out of one of our fabulous printed sweater knits.

Julia used New Look 6415, with one modification.

Wondering where the cowl is? Julia improvised it! She took the neckband pattern piece and increased its width by several inches, then added just a little extra length to make it drape nicely. The extra length got eased into the body and all that width makes a fabulous cowl collar!
