Ability: Very Easy / Beginner
I Am Rainbow, a sweatshirt where the only limit is your imagination. Choose from 70 variations with pockets and 26 versions without. Make me in your favourite length: classic, above the knee, below the knee or mid calf. I have three pockets to choose from: kangaroo, welt or in-seam. Make me with or without a zip. At the neckline, choose either a classic or overlapping hood or neckband. I can be finished with or without ribbing.
I AM Patterns are designed to be traced off. The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. This means that you will be able to make multiple sizes of the garment and adjust the pattern as you trace it if necessary. For this you could use tracing paper, baking parchment, thin wrapping paper; or we can supply you with some spot and cross pattern paper.
The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.
Garment: jersey for sweatshirt, interlock knit, neoprene, French Terry . . .
Ribbing: ribbing by the meter or the same fabric used for the garment (this pattern is not designed for using pre-cut ribbing bands).
