I measured into size Medium, but it is looser that I thought. Looking at the tester photos, I think it is roomier than the intended fit.

Our notes: This shirt is further personalized with an iron-on transfer over the solid knit fabric. Remember that it's easier to line that up properly if you iron it on after sewing and ironing the garment!

Love the black sleeves w the patterned part on the torso :-)

Our notes: The force is strong with this one, strong enough to resist the lure of the dark side. Even though the dark side has super cool logos and style for days.

This so isn’t my normal style, but I thought I’d try it and I really like it!

Our notes: We love this look, especially with the well-fitted sweater. You don't want too much bulk in each layer, if you plan to wear a jumpsuit over a cozy sweater.

I've been looking for a pattern just like this! Your version is super cute and makes me wanna make my own even more.

Our notes: This sweater looks both cozy and cool, with three-quarter sleeves. It's great for layering, or for that weird spring/fall weather where you never know what to wear.

Totally adorable :)

Our notes: Matching outfits in the same pattern are just the cutest idea, and the great thing about this pattern is that you can make a matching adult size too!

The duo fabric cowl neck is epic.

Our notes: The fit of this sweater is just perfect, with waist and hip shaping in the right places. Stripes can be difficult to match, especially in a knit, but using the stripes for the accent pieces is a great way to avoid stripe-line-up issues.

This pattern is so quick and easy.

Our notes: These two sweaters are so different, showing how versatile a single pattern can be. Colourblocking by cutting different pattern pieces in different colours is a simple way to add interest to solid fabrics, or to use up leftover fabric.

[This fabric has] been sat in my stash waiting for the right project.

Our notes: Fabric with a directional print on one edge can be difficult to work with, but a tunic like this one is a great idea. If the directional edge extends across the entire width, you can use a contrasting solid for the sleeves and edges.

[In these] tops for my nieces' birthdays, I tried a couple new things on new fabric types.

Our notes: Adding decals with initials is a genius move when siblings are similar sizes and you want to make matching outfits. Double brushed poly is a super soft, super stretchy fabric that makes great kids' clothes; after all, we expect them to move, play, and grow in these clothes!

Of course it has to feature cats.

Our notes: The tunic length version of this sweater looks like a happy hug for a cool day. And around here, we can never turn away a good cat print.
