P4P Sweater Weather | Purple Perfection

Jan 24, 2021

Coming from a girl who doesn’t super love oversized clothing on her frame, I can tell you that all bets were off with the newest release at Patterns for Pirates.  Because it’s love.  Give me some funky sleeves and pair it with a cozy fabric, and I’m apparently all yours.

Let’s talk about the Sweater Weather pattern, from P4P!

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.

I went the way of the sweater knits for this top, and I’m super smitten with it.  It’s a rayon/poly/spandex blend, in this gorgeous and soft melange brushed base….and purple.  So it’s basically wearing a cloud.  In case you’re low on some fabrics that would be great for this pattern, I recommend heading over to Sly Fox Fabrics and hitting up their “Cozy Knits” section.  (This isn’t an affiliate link, or even something I can benefit from….I just genuinely love the SFF team and what they offer.)

I’ve probably mentioned it a few times, but I’m super obsessed with funky sleeves right now.  I don’t even love gathering fabric (not in the slightest) but I’m willing to do it for a fun sleeve.  And that means something, ha.

This version of the Sweater Weather pattern is:

  • Tunic Length
  • Crew Neckline
  • Gathered Sleeves

I made zero adjustments to the pattern itself.  It’s completely as-is, one size, no grading or length adjustments needed.  And it’s perfection.

What are your thoughts on oversized clothing?  Totally into it?  Or are you more of a figure skimming / hugging type person?
