knits, but also perfect for a lightweight,
supple fleece or a ponte or double knit.
Semi-fitted, dropped-shoulder sweatshirt
has a scooped jewel neckline, center back
and front seams and full-length sleeves.
Neckline and sleeves are finished with self
or contrast knit trim. Sweatshirt features a
twisted detail at the front hemline; the back
has a deep faced & stitched hem. Self or
contrast top-stitching adds a sporty touch.
This super-cool sweatshirt looks fabulous
with matching or contrast-color sweatpants
*of course*, but try mixing it with slim or
boyfriend jeans for an effortless, off-duty
look too; you could also try this as a top
layer over a classic T-shirt dress.
Finish your outfit with old-school sneakers,
a slouchy tote and superstar shades.

That’s it! Add some contrast topstitch thread if you’d like.
All fabric amounts are for 60" or 150cm wide fabric.
Pattern went together easily. I really wearing it. I would make it out of a much lighter fabric. I think that it wold drape better. I use my top as a layering piece for light tank tops. Great pattern wil make it again.
I really liked this HotPattern design. It's comfortable, stylish and I feel that it as most of HotPatterns are, great for all ages. I did cut one size smaller than my measurements dictated but I also used a designer stretch terry knit which had a lot of stretch to it. Thank you for your thoughtfulness to curvy ladies as well as older women.
This was a fun top to sew. The instructions were clear, the pattern was beautifully drafted and went together perfectly. It was cut a tad bit large for me so I went down a size and it fits perfectly. I should have tested the neck binding though, I would have made it smaller for my small shoulders and neck compared to my chest. I sewed this with a ponte from Girl Charlee and I would like to make it again with a soft knit.
