DETAILS SWEATSHIRT SEWING PATTERN
The comfy and easy sweatshirt sewing pattern Chestnut and top come with two different options and lots of possibilities to play around with.
In general, you can opt for the sweater with three bow options or the top with the same alternatives. Firstly, version A of either of them has a lovely circular opening at the back that closes with a big bow. Meanwhile, version B sports four bows at the back closing the bodice. And option C offers a more subtle bow alternative with a nice slit or vent at the shoulder. In addition, the top has a slightly longer back and two slits at either side; whereas the sweater offers two sleeve lengths: 3/4 and long sleeves. To sum up, take a good look at all the options and pieces on before you decide.
