A sewing friend of mine sent me a photo of this adorable sweater, with no sleeve seam, a cross-over front and back, and a “batwing” style dolman sleeve. And I was obsessed with the idea of turning that rtw sweater into a sewing pattern. And that’s what I did!
Meet: the Snuggler Sweater!
This beginner friendly pattern is an adorable dolman “batwing” style sweater with a simple construction and oversized silhouette. The Snuggler Sweater is a cross-over top, with matching front and back pieces. There is a continuous sleeve from wrist-to-neckline, meaning there are very minimal seams to sew up!
The silhouette is flattering on all shapes and sizes, and is drafted for use with knit (stretch) fabrics!
Specific fabric recommendations: Brushed ribbed knits, ribbed knits, modal knit blends, double brushed polyester knits, sweater knits, spandex french terry blend knits, waffle knits, brushed waffle knits, etc.
The sweater features:
- Two hem lengths: Crop + Shirt
- Dolman “batwing” style sleeve
- Cross-over front + back bodice
- Oversized fit, with a blouse-y banded bottom hem
- Two long sleeve versions: Cuffed + Hemmed
