With a decidedly ethnic flavor, this slightly A-line jacket features a deep U-neckline, half collar, and minimal button overlap. A slip-stitch texture pattern, worked throughout the body and the sleeve cuffs, showcases the handpainted yarn to best advantage. The edgings and ribbed collar are worked in an accent color that helps to define the parts and unify the whole. With an easy fit, this jacket is ideal for layering over whatever style strikes your fancy: narrow-leg pants, a pencil skirt, camisole, tee shirt, long gauzy skirt, or a little sheath dress.
