Simple sweaters are the basis for the trendy athleisure look (where sporty pieces are integrated into everyday life), so a comfortable, perfect fit is key and that’s exactly what we’ve created for you. The Sally Sweater can be sewn with both overlock and sewing machine and is just as suitable for you if you are just starting to sew as it is for the more experienced sewers among you. We show you both variants in the video tutorial.
You want the perfect fit?
There is nothing more frustrating than when a homemade garment ends up fitting poorly. That’s over now! Because when you take the time to sew a garment yourself, you deserve it to be perfect. That’s why our sewing patterns are now also available “Customized to your measurements”. How does it work? Order the sewing pattern “Customized to your measurements”, measure yourself according to our instructions and enter your current measurements in our form. Our designers then construct your individual pattern. You will receive it within 1 to maximum 2 weeks after filling out the form as paper pattern or digital pattern by email and can start sewing without fear that your garment will not fit in the end as expected.

Find the perfect size for you simply by using our size chart. Measure your chest, waist and hip circumference and check the chart to see which size most closely matches your own measurements. With the sweater pay attention especially to the chest circumference. It is widely cut and stretchy, so not every millimeter matters here 🙂
