Sewing Pattern for Knits - Sweatshirts 512Return to Sewing Patterns
I have spent a little while getting this shape right and have made many versions of this top. It is quick to make and infinitely adaptable. Have a classic T-shirt neck (see my In-Depth Video) or add a tight or loose polo.
I like to make mine without a band at the hem. It's very much more flattering and you can tuck it in or wear it loose.
If you can find it, add ribbed banding at the cuff and neckline - leave the body straight or add ribbing at the hem. If not just use your jersey fabric doubled and stretched a bit. Such a versatile shape....
This shape is perfect for a sweatshirt or light weight long sleeved T-shirt.
