Simply put, this is a wonderful sweatshirt pattern from Trish Newbery Patterns. It is an easy pattern that is great for beginners or a quick sew. I saw Trish's example of the Statement Sweatshirt pattern and was totally inspired to recreate it. It only requires 1.2 m (1 1/3 yards) so it is a perfect pattern for scrap busting. I had just enough stretch lace left over from a previous make so I knew it would be the perfect choice!
This Statement Sweatshirt will be a great transition piece to take me into a cooler fall season and it will work really well as a layering piece for the winter months. I think the lace layered over a turtleneck will add interest and versatility to many winter outfits.
