About the pattern
The Lodi sweater is a very feminine, contemporary and even slightly sporty sweater. The pattern is tailored for use with french terry and ribbed knit of See You at Six. The pattern pieces for the ribbing are based on 80% - 75% of the sleeve and neck holes to obtain ideal stretch.
This pattern is an online/digitally created pattern, done by a web service: + You don’t need to choose the right pattern size nor adjust it, it’s completely custom generated for you! + You no longer need to choose or follow dotted lines on the papers nor to adjust a standard size of the pattern, it is completely custom-made. + Tracing the pattern on another paper is also history. + If you have a standard size, or you do not have anyone around to measure you, you can still select standard body measurements on the website to have the pattern created. + You can also choose yourself the seam allowance for the pattern, for example to easily sew along the side of your sewing foot. + The A4 pages (with or without print margins) can then be printed out, compiled and cut out. Generating on 1 page is possible, but this page is NOT an A0 format.
Because it is a pattern for a butterfly sweater you need to take into account: * if you put your arms in the air, the sweater will rise a bit at the belly. So for example as a teacher at the blackboard it might not be so useful. * also if you want to wear a tight jacket over this sweater, it might hinder a little under the arms * the pattern parts of the bodice (they include the sleeves) can be quite wide. So be sure to buy fabric that is wide enough.
Considerations and attention points before starting: • Before buying the fabric, generate a pattern and open the PDF to estimate how many fabric you will need. • Because of their highly variable body sizes, no real cutting diagram can be provided. This is something you need to check.
