Venezia, Mi Amore Boatneck Sweatshirt

Boston, Massachu...






This project was started because of my love to scuba fabrics with photo prints. I decided that it would be a great pattern for sewing in this kind of fabric. It was such a challenge to find one here in New England. We have an amazing choice of quilting fabrics, but nothing exciting for clothing.
I had to surf internet for quite a bit and finally found the one I really like on “Gorgeous fabrics” website.
The sleeves and bands are made of medium weight cotton jersey.

It came out warm enough for early fall days in the north-east. Here is the result.

Material Notes

Neoprene and SCUBA-type knits




Spring, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Cotton, Blends, Knits/Jersey

    Great! Thanks to show us the result. In the Burda issue the sweatshirt was looking a little puffy. That’s why i was hesitating to start that project. But it finally looks good! Did you make some alterations (sleeve or size)?

    I love to see a simpler pattern where the fabric is the main attraction. Well done.
