Santa Fe Jacket

This is a woman's batwing-style jacket. The shape came from a back issue of Fashion Knitting, in which the title was "Santa Fe"--I think (going by that magazine's editorial practice at the time) this referred to a novelty yarn that was made that year. In this photo I focussed on a detail of the front in order to show the colors, and sure enough, on this computer the brown, tan, and cream yarn is showing up realistically, at least in the middle third of the picture. The jacket has a round neckline, a wide center front panel with room for either one or two rows of snap fasteners, and full-length batwing sleeves.

Material: 100% acrylic. Machine wash and dry.

Size: 40-44" bust, 5'6"-5'9"

Price: $25 for the jacket, $5 for shipping. (Yes, you could fit something small, such as a cap, into the package with this jacket and pay only one $5 for shipping.)

By the way, would anyone like to see better photos of the handcrafts available through this web site? E-mail salolianigodagewi (at yahoo) to donate a better-quality digital camera, and we'll post them. These were snapped with a $5 Tracfone.
