Coming off of the year that we all had last year, we wanted to start you off right in 2021 with something comfy, cozy and perfect for the winter season. And so, our newest patterns were born. Allow me to introduce you to: Sweater Weather.
Sweater Weather is the perfect pattern to grab when it’s chilly. You can create a classic sweater that will stay in your wardrobe for years to come or a super trendy look that hits the sweet spot this season perfectly. You can go from off the shoulder when it’s just a bit cool, to crew, to turtleneck when you really need something warm. The off the shoulder neckline is meant to be super wide so you can pull it off one side or wear it to the edge of your shoulders- not so wide you need to mess with it all day with wear. The crew neckline isn’t too tight that the crew or turtleneck feel restrictive even in thicker fabrics. All sleeves options are long for those cooler months. The belled sleeves are a super fun and trendy option that are so fun to wear. The traditional sleeves will always be in style paired with any neckline. And the gathered sleeves are such a fun a different detail to give yourself something fun to wear. All options have a great split side seam with a longer back bodice.
Drafted for knits like sweater knits, double brushed poly, spandex french terry blends. waffle knits, ribbed knits, brushed waffle knits, brushed ribbed knits, and more.
The youth sizes range from 3m – 14 and the adult sizes are for the full, newer size chart, extending from XXS – Plus 5X! If you haven’t sewn with us in a while, please make sure to check the size charts, as there were slight adjustments made to accommodate the new size range for adults.
