The modern way to rock a cropped top, this
super-chic mixed media sweatshirt is designed
for medium-weight knits with a little stretch and
body, like ponte, sweat-shirting or sweater
knits; the shirt-style bottom can be made in
light to medium-weight shirt or blouse fabrics,
like shirting, all-over lace, linen, charmeuse,
crepe, rayon or even a not-too-stretchy jersey.
Semi-fitted, pull-on cropped sweatshirt has
slightly dropped shoulders and a deep hem
with side slits. Envelope-style boat neckline
and full length sleeves are finished with self
or contrast knit trim. Contrast faux shirt hem
has a curved back & angled crossover front.
You’ll love this versatile on-trend stunner...try
it over a slim, cropped pant or skinny pencil
skirt for a cool everyday look; wear it to dress
up your favorite distressed boyfriend jeans;
or team it with a midi-length A-line skirt and
chunky heels for a modern off-duty outfit.
For all sizes you’ll need around 2 yards/182cm
of knit fabric for the sweat-shirt, plus 3/4 yard/68cm
of woven fabric for the shirt-tail.
You’ll also need around1/4 yard/23cm of tricot
or knit fusible interfacing.
Fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.
This pattern was easy and quick to make and fit perfectly. I loved the look it gave to my shoulder area with the back neck detail crossing over the front.
Trudy does it again with this chic take on a modern 'sweatshirt'. With a cool wrapped shoulder and angled "shirt-tails", this pattern is a winner! It's easy to fit and quick to sew...I've made one and have plans for more :)
