Well, I really just got lazy. I spent the rest of the morning working on the sleeves and decided that I really, really didn’t want to make my own bias binding. I did that for my original Hot Patterns Wrapture Jacket and while it looked good, it was quite a bit of work. I was also afraid that the twill I was using would create too much bulk. So, I broke down and purcsed a package of bias tape. Several hours later I had completed my Anthropologie Geranium Sweater Jacket look-alike!
I’m going to post a full review over at Pattern Review tonight – I’ll post a link incase anyone wants further information on how to make this jacket.
