I absolutely love this top. I will definitely be making another, now that I am aware of how to construct the cowl neck. The pattern was not clear at all for constructing the cowl neck for a beginner, but with the help from CKC on Facebook and a lot of thinking, I got it!
This oversized top is just what you need to be warm (and trendy) this winter. Featuring cropped, shirt, and tunic lengths, as well as short turtleneck, tall turtleneck, cowl neck, and a regular neckband option, Jemima's is a must have pattern for your wardrobe. Use sweater knits in your size to create an oversized tunic length sweater to wear with leggings and boots for an everyday look, or use a hacci knit and size down one size to make a more fitted cropped top to pair with jeans and booties for a sassy night out look. The versatility of this top and the different options make it perfect for everyone! This pattern was written for the use of knit fabrics, but you could use a woven for the balloon sleeve portion only. Mix and match prints and solids for a different look each time. Let your creativity shine! The sky is the limit now let’s see what YOU can do with it!
Please note that PDF patterns differ from traditional sewing patterns, and not all PDF designers have the same style. We prefer to give measurements for simple rectangles instead of rectangular pattern pieces to save your time, paper, ink, and tape. You will only receive pattern pieces for curved portions of the garment, and you will follow the cutting chart for the remaining pieces.
