After a grand silence here on the blog by little old me, I have an exciting new pattern to share with our dear readers!
Tami from Love Notions Sewing Patterns has updated and extended the size range on her popular Ladies’ Sloane Sweater Pattern AND also released a brand new girls’ Sloane Sweater! You can buy both of them in a bundle right here!
Why do I love Love Notions Sewing Patterns? Size range of 2T-16 for girls, line drawings to showcase the different options/views, and excellent fit advice! I also love the no-trim pages and layered printing to take me from computer to sewing machine quickly!
Why do I love the Love Notions Sloane Sweater? My Middle Miss, Queen of Dresses and Leggings, has worn her Sloane Sweater 4 times since I made it last week. It’s the first thing she pulls out of the clean laundry. She has since asked if we can buy more french terry and if I can make her “a hundred more.”
I guess I can see her point.
The slimmer fit View A is fitted, but still cozy in this deep merlot heathered french terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I used Bari J’s Garden Rocket print from the Bachelorette Fusions by Art Gallery Fabrics. I always have beautiful scraps of Art Gallery leftover that I can’t bear to part with you!
Even with taking the time to include details like the contrast yoke and of course blending sizes for my slim daughters, the Sloane Sweater is a quick sew. After making a muslin to check armscyes and length for my tall daughters, I was able to make this beautiful version in under an hour.
The subtle curved hem looks great with skinny jeans and will definitely become a wardrobe staple in our house. I can’t wait to make many more Sloane sweaters – including one for me!
What is your favorite option on the new Sloane Sweater?
November is half over already, and the season of Advent is fast approaching. Now is…
