Inspired by the classic fisherman's top, this feminine version is more than a jumper but less than a jacket.
All decorative top stitching is optional.
All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless otherwise stated.
Skill level - beginner.
Fabric suggestions - medium weight, dress weight wovens, cotton sanded twill, 8-14oz denim, linen, corduroy, tencel, tencel/linen, wool tweeds and oilskin.
It works well in fabrics as diverse as heavy wool and oilskin. If you want to keep the boxy shape choose something with structure and body, if you use something like linen it will have a softer more slouchy look.
