Traditionally constructed of simple contrasting panels of handwoven wool, rectangular solid color panels of handwoven wool, rectangular solid color panels alternate with horizontal striped wedge-shaped panels, creating an overlap front opening. Worn open or belted, the neckband extends to the hem. Facings (indigo-dyed blue on Folkwear's original) are turned to the inside along the front opening, hem, side vents, and armhole. An additional decorative facing (silken gold brocade on our prototype) is turned to the outside underarm and shoulder area.
Instructions are given for a simple optional lining, which eliminates the need to finish the seams. Mix and match your favorite fabrics for a truly unique look.
