  1. Erin (verified owner)

    Loved this pattern!

  2. Rachel (verified owner)

    Good pattern, it’s hard to talk what to do first in the instructions. I’m part way though making it, but need to add another panel at the bottom as it doesn’t feel long enough. I’ll know for next time to lengthen it.

  3. Jeni (verified owner)

    Can’t get through winter….or camping without this.

  4. kimhenn (verified owner)

    Great fit ! Went together easily and the instructions were well written. Will be making this one again.

  5. Joan (verified owner)

    Itch to stitch has some of the best instructions there is. Spot on with the picture details. Patterns are extremely well marked, notches always match and the layering printing, so you can print only what you need is fantastic. Love Itch to stitch.

  12. Jacquelyn (verified owner)

    This pullover turned out so well. Drafted beautifully. I made it up in knit boucle with batik bias binding. Love it!

  13. Nicole (verified owner)

    Really great sewing pattern. Exactly what I was looking for! The fit is great.

  14. Addrea (verified owner)

    Another great pattern! Have made two already and will make more. Easy to see with wonderful results.

  15. Christine (verified owner)

    The most recent patterns are exactly what I wear every day rather than dresses. Thank you for making patterns of the clothes I’d be buying at the active outdoor wear retail stores. I can now make them better fitting and with my own fabric choices!

  16. Eileen (verified owner)

    Such an easy pattern, and the contrast placket and binding gives it real distinction! Now to make another one in a different colour.

Material

Primary Fabric Medium to medium-heavy weight knit fabric with 5-15% stretch such as microfleece, sherpa fleece and sweatshirting. Medium weight stretch woven is also acceptable.

Contrast Fabric Stable lightweight woven fabric with no stretch such as quilting cotton and chambray. This fabric is for the front placket.

Interfacing Lightweight woven or weft insertion fusible interfacing

Bias Binding Fabric Stable lightweight woven fabric with no stretch such as quilting cotton and chambray. Ideally, use a fabric that will result in a nice sharp crease when pressed. This can be the same as the contrast fabric. No pattern piece is provided. The self-made bias stripe should be 1 7/8″ (4.8 cm) wide.

Other Materials

  • Five (5) sets of 1/2” (12.5 mm) snap closure with corresponding tool for installation.
  • 46″ (117 cm) of 3/8” or 1/2” (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide straight fusible stay tape (or cut your own using lightweight woven fusible interfacing on the straight grain)

Fabric Requirements

Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.

* The fabric requirement assumes the use of the continuous loop method to make bias tapes.

How to choose your size

  1. Determine your cup sizeβ€”subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 1β€³ (2.5 cm), use A cup; 2β€³ (5 cm), use B cup; 3β€³ (7.5 cm), use C cup; 4β€³ (10 cm), use D cup; 5β€³ (12.5 cm), use DD cup.
  2. After determining the cup size, compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the β€œBody Measurements” table. Using the corresponding row for your cup, choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the β€œBody Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  4. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the β€œBody Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  5. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  6. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
