This Tabula Rasa Jacket has two details beyond the basic pattern. The band was widened to 3 inches (finished width) and piped on both sides with the smaller print fabric to create a "faux shawl collar". Directions for this band treatment are included in our most recent set of variations for the Tabula Rasa Jacket, Band Variations & Pockets. The directions for adding flat piping are already included in the basic pattern. This jacket also features a simple band cuff, also piped with the contrasting fabric, directions for which are included in Sleeve & Cuff Variations.
