Novelty Knit Cascade Jacket & Top

What are you most proud of? I love the fact that this knit is reversible. I used one side for the jacket and the other side for the top. Both sides are great! What advice would you give someone starting this project? The shape of this jacket works well for all figure types

Q&A with Pam Howard

karen.vau. asked:
So, the rule about the greatest stretch going around the body can be broken as long as the crossgrain stretch is equal to the amount of stretch recommended on the pattern? It is a beautiful use of the fabric.
Pam Howard answered:
Yes, this fabric worked well when changing the stripe direction. It had about the same amount of stretch in the length and width. Thanks so much!
susanna1 asked:
Hi Pam, what pattern is the Novelty knit cascade jacket and top please.
Pam Howard answered:
Hi, The jacket pattern is Simplicity 2603. I love it and have made it many times! The top was a Burda Style pattern from many years ago. I'm sorry that I don't remember the number, but any t-shirt top will work :-)
