Sew House Seven Toaster Sweater Version 2

Hi All!!

Hope your’re all well!!

It has come round to that time to show off your Sweaters for the January Project of #Sewmystyle!

 I’ve used version 2 which is available here to buy as a pdf as it felt much more my style rather than then cropped version of no.1. Love the Side splits!

Version 2 is an easy top/sweater that can be dressed up or down. It is somewhat fitted through the shoulders and sleeves and then swings out a bit at the underarms and hem. It features a semi-hi-neck that takes its inspiration from funnel and boat necks. It also has mitered side vents with a hi-low hem that is 1” shorter in the front than the back. The front hem falls just below the high hip.

Finally had a use of this Thick Sweatshirt/Jersey Knit that I had found in B and M Fabrics on my Sew Up North Adventure back in November 2016.

With this being 60″ wide I used the double fold technique making full use of the width available and I  was able to save Half a metre after cutting Yay!! I cut a large all over but in hind sight i should of shortened the sleeves at this point as I took off 2.5″ off at the end of the sleeves!

Now i got my Overlocker out to aid the quickness of this sew! I only used my Normal machine for the beginning part of the neck facing and the hemming the Jumper to get the Mitred corners.

I love how the Corners came out!! Just sooo precise! The Instructions were fab to follow even though I had a Durr moment at the beginning of making the corners and didn’t realise that it was just either the front or back of each corner at a time with Right Sides together not both the front and back of the jumper together lol!

But here it is hung on ‘Dorris’

Then of course moi;

I totally love the split hem!!

So This lovely Sweater will be taking part in of course January’s Project #Sewmystyle,

  1. Great version. The fabric is so lovely and the color too.

  2. im on the dressmaking bloggers network too. Similar tastes! I made my v1 in a very similar type fabric in grey( see my blog and love it. Bizarrely I bought at the same time a stone coloured fabric identical to your navy fabric ready for V2,,,, would have bought navy but it was not available in the online shop I was buying from

  3. I’m a copycat! I joined the #sewmystyle challenge and also #wardrobebuilder. I made my Toaster Sweater from a lighter weight knit, so debating if it meets “cozy” for the dressmakers challenge.

    1. Your not a copycat your joining in! ? Have fun!

Leave me some Love :)
