I found this among my very old things…, I made this long ago… I wasn’t so skilled at sewing, and I thought fleece must be the easiest to sew…, and I was right!! It’s a great beginner fabric, ‘cause you don’t have to do anything with the edges! I made it after a very old kind of pattern, from a Lutterloh-“the golden rule” case (it belonged to my best friends grandmother, and now it’s mine!!) The patterns are so cool…, most of them are from the 50’s, and there are some from the 70’s to. The sweater was really easy to make. The zipper was the tricky part… I added a modest puff-sleeve.
