I am a 90’s girl, through and through. So when I saw this rainbow colored, leopard print, sweater knit….my heart stopped. I was basically taken straight back to the days of Lisa Frank stickers and notebook. Talk about a nostalgic trip down memory lane in my new Sweater Weather top!
The newest release from P4P is all about keep comfy during the colder months. There are three sleeve types (belled, gathered and traditional), three lengths (tunic, shirt and cropped) and three necklines (turtleneck, crew, and off-the-shoulder). Each option is designed with a split, high-low hem and an incredibly generous silhouette.
The pattern was drafted with sweater knits in mind, but it’s great for other fabric bases like double brushed poly, french terry blends (the ones with a spandex content are best), waffle knits, ribbed knits, etc.
This time around, I used an alpaca sweater knit (in a poly/rayon/spandex blend) that is suuuuuper soft and delightful to work with. I made zero adjustments to the pattern itself. It’s completely as-is, one size, no grading or length adjustments needed.
This version of the Sweater Weather pattern is:
- Crop Length
- Crew Neckline
- Belled Sleeves
The belled sleeves are so fun on this top. I don’t find myself in long sleeves very often (I either push them up or just go ahead and make myself a 3/4 length) but when I do have long sleeves I want them to be a little on the funky side. This belled sleeves is oversized, flowy, and just adds this cozy element to this top. I’m in love.
Does this fabric bring you back to the 90’s like it does me? What would you have made with it?
