|Pattern Description: |
MISSES'/MEN'S TOPS AND JACKET: Close-fitting, pullover tops have princess seams and narrow hem. A: purchased trim. A and B: neck band. Fitted jacket has hem band and exposed zipper. C and D: contrast lined hood. All have cuffs, and fit for men's sizing.
Unisex S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL. I made the Medium, and should've done the small. Since my contrast fabric was a woven (non-stretch) I was concerned, but had to take it in quite a bit.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. I did View A, and instead of using a strip of lace trim on the sleeves, I cut a strip of the contrast fabric instead. Looks awesome!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I was looking for a "Luxe" sweatshirt pattern that would allow me to use 2 fabrics. The added bonus was that the line drawing made view A look like it was cut for a lady. The bottom hem line (instead of being gathered with a band) is very flattering, and helps with the "Luxe" look.
1 1/2 yards of wool blend knit (speckled black and taupe) and 1/2 yard of sparkly tweed, all from Haberman Fabrics in Royal Oak, Michigan.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Added 1" to the length (just to be safe).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, absolutely. With "Luxe Sweatshirts" being all the rage right now, I think I'll use this pattern again and again.
Conclusion: It's a great pattern that goes together easily, just watch the sizing for the fit.
