I love how Simplicity is supporting Indy pattern makers. Here's an example of that kind of support. This design is by Sew House Seven and while it isn't named the toaster sweater, I do believe that is the pattern it's based from.
There is something that makes a sweatshirt dressier when you leave off the bottom band...right?
Yes, I know, more indoor photos but it is so very cold outside today I just couldn't bring myself to go out there any more than I had to.
I used a heavily textured sweatshirt fabric from my stash. Not sure where I got it but I am glad I finally used it up. The gray trim is also from my stash and the color combo is perfect.
This is such an easy, instant gratification project.
I lengthened the top by an inch, made a size smaller than my measurements called for, and made the side slit shorter by about 2 inches.
I also used SewkeyeE stay tape for the hem and side slits.
Be aware at how roomy this is. I wouldn't want it any bigger.
Thanks for reading!
