'Straight-cut, v-necked pullover sewn from knitted fabric. The hem is shorter at the front and longer at the back.' Pattern Sizing:
Burda sizes 36-44. I made size 40 based on my measurements and the size chart. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, pretty straightforward. I sewed both shoulder seams before adding the bias binding to the neckline. I also need to gather my sleeves to get them to fit into the cuffs. This was probably due to the amount of stretch in my fabric being less than the suggested fabric. I used a zig zag stitch to attach the cuffs to maintain some stretch to allow for pushing up sleeves. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is a comfortable top that feels slouchy but looks a bit more stylish than a sweatshirt due to the neckline, cuffs and different lengths of the waistband. It fits well and the waistband gives it some definition on the body. Fabric Used:
A knitted fabric in pink acrylic wool with blue and other colours running through it. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None apart from gathering the sleeves into the cuffs. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might sew this again. It is quick and easy to make and I would recommend this for beginners. Conclusion:
I think I will wear this a lot in the cooler weather. It is so comfortable and I like the style, which will look nice on very casual days
I have also made the skirt which was pictured with the jacket in this issue of the magazine. For pictures of both, please visit my blog
