The geese may be flying south, but you are all set for the crisp fall air with this cozy jacket. A smart two-color pattern of v’s in formation worked side to side in a lofty tweed yarn with excellent drape, works up quickly. Wear it closed with a modern leather clasp, or open for a classic shawl collar.

0-2” positive ease recommended, based on closed bust dimension. When worn double-breasted with clasp at waist, jacket will flare open above and below to create additional ease at bust & hip.
