The sun was shining in April but I wasn’t fooled. Average temperatures were 10C so no near warm enough for me. As it was still windy outside spring plans were postponed in favour of another transitional piece in the form of this out-of-print 60’s style pullover.I really love when a pattern offer a wardrobe. This pattern includes a wrap skirt that looks very cool too, specially version E.
The pattern is super quick to make. The tunnel turtleneck is an extension of the neckline instead of a separate band finishing with a facing. There are two long darts shaping the neckline both at the front and at the back. Version A & B feature kimono sleeves.
Even thou I’m not really attracted by kimono sleeves I felt that it was an integral part of this oversize style. I sewn a straight size 12 version A.
My alteration were omitting the back zipper, adding cuffs and shortening the sleeves. Mainly because I run out of fabric.As this was kind of a test run of the pattern I used the left over fabric from this sweater. It’s really warm. I’m in love with this pullover.
If I repeat this pattern my intention is to reduce the back fullness and swap the kimono sleeves but I have too many patterns I want to sew.
This is an out of print vintage style pattern but I cannot date it. Maybe you could help me.
I’m not sewing anything very involved recently and I have been terrible in keeping the blog updated. I will be blogging more often from July but keep up with my DIY progress over Instagram & Facebook.
