The Waterfall Jacket
(From the Sure-Fit Designs™ Dress Kit)

As you read through your instructions, you'll notice that if you choose to add on a wider 'waterfall' drape, the lower the drape will hang. For the pink/black knit jacket, I've chosen the shorter waterfall extension.
This jacket looks great over either a matching or contrasting tank top. My basic black tank top sets off the black in the fabric. However I'd purchased plenty of fabric to sew a coordinating tank top.
This particular fabric has a real funky selvage that looks like mini-fringe. It was just perfect for leaving as is for the lower hem edge. In order to achieve this I needed to lay the straight of grain PERPENDICULAR to the selvage, not the usual parallel to the selvage layout.
Then I cut a design line from the right armhole through to the lower left side seam. Once the pattern was cut apart on this diagonal design line, seam allowance was added. I wanted the fringy selvage to act as a design element in the final presentation.
The fabric wrong side was dominant in black, so I reversed the fabric to cut & sew the bias trim that I applied at the armhole and neckline.
All up, it's a great design combination - the waterfall jacket and the tank top - enjoy!
