Get the laid-back cool and classic comfort of
a sweatshirt or sweater dress, with a dressy,
modern twist. Top and dress are designed for
knit fabrics with a little body and stretch, like
velour or stretch velvet, ponte or double knits,
French terry, lightweight fleece, sweatshirt,
T-shirt, or sweater knits.
Pull-on A-line sweatshirt or sweaterdress has
a center back seam, angled side seams & bust
darts for a neat fit. Mix up the details for the
perfect look: choose a long flared sleeve or add a
turn-back cuff; make the optional cut-in pockets or
not; pick a boat-neck or a shapely semi-V neck.
Make it your best length too, either a thigh-length
tunic or a knee length dress. Sleeve and body hems
and necklines are finished with deep stitched facings.
These are the perfect throw-on-&-go pieces-try skinny
or bootcut pants under the sweatshirt, pull on your
favorite boots with the dress, maybe
add a scarf and you’re d-o-n-e done...
Sweatshirt in all sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
will need around 2 3/4 yards or 252cm fabric;
Sweaterdress in all sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
will need around 3 1/2 yards or 320cm fabric.
Both versions also need ½ yard or 45cm interfacing.
All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.
This is an upscale sweatshirt. Use a quality fabric and you can wear this anywhere. I made the tunic length with the v-neck and it is very flattering. I was expecting something more slouchy but was pleasantly surprised with a roomy flattering top. This is really a nice pattern with pockets and two necklines.
This pattern seems to work in ANY weight of knit fabric.
In drapey stretch velvet it is dressy and swings and flows.
In mid-weight stretch cotton/lycra velour it looks structured, cozy, and much more “put together” than a normal sweatshirt or hoodie.
In heavy sweatshirt fabric, it is the ultimate in casual chic.
In lightweight ponte, it looks polished.
What a winner! This is my current favorite pattern. Thank you Trudy!
