Guess what day it is?! PATTERN RELEASE DAY, y’all!! It’s always so much fun when we get to launch patterns that we’ve been working hard on behind the scenes. The All Buttoned Up patterns (in both adult and youth sizes) are S.O. G.O.O.D. — we think you’re going to just love them so much!
The All Buttoned Up is a staple in every wardrobe. Nothing beats having a great cardigan to throw on when you’re chilly, and this one happens to be incredibly versatile!
You can wear it buttoned up as a shirt or dress or over another layer as an open cardigan. It’s slim enough to wear another layer over comfortably for even colder times. The multiple sleeve lengths and top lengths give this pattern year round usage. The V-neckline and crew neckline mean you can create the perfect pairings for any layers you need it to match. Fitted enough to look sleek, but still has room to grow and stay in their closet for great usage. Casual enough to wear buttoned up with jeans or dressed up over a nice dress.
This one cardigan pattern will you give you miles of usage over the seasons and years with it’s timeless look and options.
The All Buttoned Up is drafted for a high stretch fabric like sweater knits, double brushed poly, spandex rib knits, and the like. Options include: crop, shirt, tunic, and knee lengths; short, 3/4, long hemmed and long with cuff sleeve lengths, v-neckline and crew necklines. The adult pattern features a back seaming (meaning you don’t have to worry about any pooling around your lower back waist) and it also has an additional lower scoop neckline.

Victoria Bozarth says
This pattern simply states that this pattern needs lightweight interfacing, yet it does not say if this interfacing needs to be stretch or regular interfacing.
I was always under the notion that if you are sewing knit fabric, you need knit interfacing. Is that true for this patter n as well?
I use non-stretch. I believe I have a video to help pick interfacing for this pattern on YouTube, but I might be remembering a different pattern. You can use stretch interfacing if you have it on hand. The button placket doesn’t need to stretch as all with fit and wear though, so if you only have non-stretch that is okay too. I hope this helps!
