Rainbow Sweatshirt 70 Variations, Sewing Pattern, I AM Patterns

£16.00



Description

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.

The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.

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.

Level: Simple

Versions:

This pattern gives you the possibility of making 70 different versions, and 26 more versions without pockets!

The different features of this garment are:

  • 2 styles: zipped hoodie or slip-on sweatshirt
  • 2 cuff and bottom finishes: with ribbing or hemmed
  • 4 lengths: classic, above-knee, below-knee and midi
  • 3 types of pockets: kangaroo, welt or inseam
  • 3 neckline finishes: classic hood, overlapping hood or neckband

You can then choose the sweatshirt you want to make by combining the different features together.

Sizes: 36 to 46 (see sizing chart in images)

Suggested Fabrics: 

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).

Notions:

  • Fabrics / Ribbing
  • Ballpoint needle

Zipped versions: 1 open-end zipper :

  • Below-knee: 35 in (90 cm) long double-slider zipper
  • Midi: 43 in (110 cm) long double-slider zipper

*21 11/16 in is the conversion for 55 cm which is the length the original pattern is drafted for. You can take a 22 in long zipper but you will have to lengthen the front and back pieces by 5/16 in. To understand how to do this, refer to step 2 (Preparing the pattern) of the instructions.
