My tutorials. See my tutorial how to block dresses: https://www.heavenlyclassyknits.com/tutorials

I have made a skirt out of this pattern, so I needed a matching jacket…

Notes on the jacket construction: Levenwick cardi technique was used to construct this jacket. Sts numbers were adjusted to 113% from the original Levenwick pattern to accommodate this particular yarn.

Seed stitch all over with garter borders. The lace part was taken from E and F charts (eyelets and feather part only).

If you are wondering about the wooden jewelry box on the picture, my father carved it out for me with hand tools (knife and a sand paper) for a present. It took him about 2 months to make it.
