Review of Sunday Everyday Sweater by Ensemble patterns
I was immediately drawn to this pattern. It looked cozy, something I could wear every day and yet still feel stylish. With the twisted side seams and the hi-low bottom hem it really makes a simple sweater look cool.
The pattern comes in two formats, A4 and A0. If you are printing at home you’ll have to trim the pages. It is marked well and has the layers option where you can print out only the size you are making. I am not a fan of taping patterns but have to say it came together nicely.
Seam allowance of 3/8’’ is included in the pattern. The pattern comes in sizes 0-18 and is based on your hip measurement 86-119 cm (34.5-47 inches)
There are three lengths for the hi-lo hem option – short , mid and long , or the regular hem options – crop, basic and tunic length. The inseam pockets are optional: I really like them on the longer versions of the sweater.
Here you can see the high-lo hem details in action:
I used the Caboodle textiles plain French Terry for both sweaters I made and it was the perfect fabric for the job. Other suggested fabrics are Sweatshirt Fleece, Double Knit, Sweater Knit, Terry Cloth, Neoprene, Quilted Knit or Hacci Knit.
I added 2cm to the length of the sleeves, instructions and cut line is included in the pattern, the designer also offers alterations for fuller bust and flat bust.
The instructions are written clearly and thoroughly , my favourite part is the hidden neckline seam which gives it a professional finish.
With all the options the pattern is suitable for a beginner as well as a more experienced sewer.
I made two sweaters so far, both with hi-lo bottom hem. In my opinion that is the detail that really makes this sweater interesting. The long option with pockets goes really well with tights and the short one which I chose to make in brighter colors looks super with jeans. Perfect for getting ready for the spring!
Ensemble have recently expanded their business to adult clothing . She has a plan to release a pattern a month as a part of her slow fashion project. I’m really looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next. In the meantime, there is a free Greco tee pattern if you sign up for the newsletter.
