I am totally in love with this top! It’s soooo comfy and snuggly. I never want to take it off! After wanting to make this sweater for ages, I finally got around to buying it and I’m now wondering why I didn’t get it sooner! It’s awesome! It’s also one of my #makenine for 2018 so I’m off to a good start!
I opted to make version 1 without the topstitching, mainly because I like the neck on it. My plan was to make a wearable toile out of a cheap fabric before buying a more expensive sweatshirt fabric to make a ‘proper’ one. I bought a black quilted ponte roma for something like £8 a metre and it sewed up really nicely. It’s really soft and snuggly.
This pattern has got to be one of the quickest and easiest sews ever! I reckon I made it in about an hour and I’m a slow sewist. I loved how it came together and the raglan sleeve. I now want to add a band for the hem of everything I make as it’s so easy and loads better than hemming!
Now I just need to find some snuggly sweatshirt fabric to make another!
Name: Toaster Sweater (version 1)
Company: Sew House Seven
Description: A high neck, raglan sleeve cropped sweater with a wide waistband and wide cuffs.
Printed of PDF: I have a printed pattern although it is available in both. I think you can also buy version 1 and 2 separately.
Sizing: XS – XXL. I made a M.
Fabric: A black quilted ponte roma from Fabric Godmother £8 p/m. (It’s currently available in other colours but not black)
Difficulties encountered: None
Time taken: after cutting out, I reckon this took no more than an hour.
Recommend: yes yes yes!
What would I change: I know it’s supposed to be cropped but I would like to add to the length. I’m not a fan of anything that potentially shows off my stomach!
My favourite thing: I love the neck and how easy it is to sew!
