When you crave the easy glamour of a
sweatshirt but you need to look chic &
pulled-together, choose this gorgeous
retro-inspired piece, just right for
medium-weight fleece, sweatshirting,
ponte, scuba, or firm sweater knits.
Loose-fit, pull-over, dolman sleeve
sweatshirt has a faced boat neck with
an optional banded collar, 3/4 length
sleeves & hi-lo hemline. Back has a
center seam; your bust darts are
cleverly transformed into deep pleats
at the hem to create a cocoon shape.
Hem & sleeves finish with facings.
Make this in nubbly knits for a superior
sweater, or a classic sweatshirting for a
sporty look. Wear with a slim skirt or
pants, skinny jeans, or try stirrup pants
for a fab modern-retro outfit. Balance
the hi-lo hemline with a longer length
shirt-tail tank layered underneath, or wear
as-is to showcase the unique silhouette.
All sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
you will need around 2 yards or 183 cm fabric;

knit or tricot interfacing.
