The multi-sized pattern is lightweight, the perfect quick cover-up in over air-conditioned venues during the summer, or layered over turtlenecks in the winter. They're great for travel in any season. You just can't wrinkle them. And you can't iron them either, so it's a perfect match.
The Rag Fur Jacket is flattering, it's "furry," and it FITS! The pattern comes XXS to XXXL. There are just four easy-to-cut-out pieces: back, front, neckband, and cuffs. That's it! Adjust for sleeve length and start sewing. These are best made with very tightly-woven batiks. Your jacket will last years longer.
If you're getting the Quilter's Handshake from everyone you meet (women rubbing your back just to examine your jacket), then download this flyer and give them the information they desire!
* Take measurements over clothing. Use whichever measurement is larger. Sleeve length can be adjusted.
**Based on 44/45" width fabric with less than 2% shrinkage. Fringe fabric MUST be very tightly woven 100% cotton fabric (200 threadcount or higher) with equal color saturation on both "right" and "wrong" sides, such as batiks. Fabric for jacket base may be any quilting weight cotton or blend. Jacket base can also be made from fringe fabric. The jacket I'm wearing on the pattern cover was made with about 20 different fabrics. Jennie's black Rag Fur Jacket was made with the same Hoffman fabric throughout, as were the other three jackets in the inset picture.

"The way that you tell of how to measure for the arm length is great. I have very short arms and never can get them to fit properly. Using your measuring system they fit just great."
