Burda 02/2017 #111A Sweatshirt | Take 2

Upstate, South C...






Loving the first (pink) Burda Boxy Sweatshirt I recently made, I knew immediately I’d be making a second. Modifications were made to this one. To fit me better, I folded the front pattern piece in @1" before placing on fold, and did the same to the back pattern piece. This pulled in the width and narrowed the neckline a little, but still retained the ‘boxy’ shape. Also added side seams in this one and think I like the way it hangs on my body a little better than not having side seams. All seams are serged and top-stitched and really like this little detail in these sweatshirts. Again, eliminated the hidden inner pocket. This is definitely a favorite sweatshirt as it wears like a comfy ‘sweatshirt’, yet does not look like an ordinary oversized sweatshirt.
