I’m celebrating my birthday today by sharing this brand new pattern with you! I hope you love it as much as we do! The Modern Sweater is the perfect balance of on trend details with classic looks that you can reach for years to come. The neckline is a perfect relaxed crew neck with several options to finish it off. The entire sweater is finished with bands, making it a super quick and simple sew…. it’s very easy to make a big stack! The loose fit is a great medium between comfortable and cozy and still figure flattering. The length options mean you can pair it with any bottoms you’re loving at the moment.
The Modern Sweater is the perfect comination of modern looks with classic options too. You can choose from the on trend lantern sleeves or go with the traditional sleeves. Pick from crop lengths that is all the rage right now with high waisted bottoms or go for the never out of style shirt length. You can add on a short or tall waistband a get more variety on length as well. The crop with tall waistband gives you more coverage while keeping the blouse at the flattering point in your figure…while adding it to the shirt length will give you more of a tunic length. The neckline options can give you very different looks and can take you from fall into winter. The neckline is slightly deeper and wider that a traditional crew neckline, which is comfortable and right on trend in todays shops. The thicker neckband give it a super classic casual look. The turtleneck going from that deeper neckline up the neck is such a cute look. While you can’t get cozier than the fold over turtleneck for keeping warm. The options for the Modern Sweater include:
- Neckband, Turtleneck, and Fold Over Turtleneck
- Crop Length and Shirt Length
- Short Waistband and Tall Waistband
- Traditional Sleeves and Lantern Sleeves
- Solid Bodice and Sleeves and Colorblocked Bodice and Sleeves
