Completed: TSW Ikina Jacket

This jacket really came together quickly! I finished it up this morning.

Because the boucle hid any stitches, I did most of the assembly with the serger and sewed down the hems with a large zig zag. The fit is a cross between a sweater and a jacket.

Thanks Terri K, for posting your knit Ikina to Sewer's Guild a while ago. I used a lot of your ideas to make mine.

You are so welcome Nancy! I've about worn mine out and need to sew up another.

The 'cross between a sweater and a jacket' is so useful and the cut is elegant. Reminds me of an Eleen Fisher piece I just saw, with a very hefty price tag.
