This cropped jacket was commissioned by a fan who wanted a fancy, feminine something to wear to Queensland Reds games. The pattern was developed from my basic 'go-to' raglan jacket pattern, and has roomy 3/4 sleeves and a shawl collar.
On the back I used reverse (or cutwork) applique and metallic embroidery to render 'Reds' in a deco-like pattern. It is subtle, but leaves no doubt as to who the wearer supports!
The Reds play the Waratahs this weekend, in the last regular match of the season. With a win (and a little luck in the results of the other matches in the round) they'll make it into the Super Rugby Final Series. Go fellas!
|Wendall 'helping' with the embroidery. It's nice and warm under the halogen lamp!|
