OK, I rack up 30 points for this little sweatshirt, made from out-of-print Kwik Sew 3452.
How many meters? 1.5 = 10 points.
How long in stash? Since May 2017 = 10 points
How precious? I like it, but I won’t cry if it’s a fail = 10 points.
I’ve been planning to make this for a year now. I wanted to replicate a cheap half-zip sweatshirt I bought on vacation in Cape Cod years ago. I couldn’t find the perfect pattern, so I asked the community on PatternReview.com for help. A member offered up this pattern and sent it to me for free, since she had a duplicate in her stash. What a sweetheart, hunh? The pattern is copyrighted 2007, so if there were brownie points for “how long has the pattern been in stash” I would have cleaned up!
It’s a lovely pattern – well printed on nice paper with clear instructions. I love the finish on the collar.
Next up – a button-up shirt using fabric I’ve been seeking the perfect pattern for… for more than a year!
