The pattern has only two pieces, it is basically a rectangle with two armholes! There are 20 pages to print.

The length of the rectangle should be at your hip.

Fabric requirements

You’ll need around 1 3/4 yd (1.6 m) of a lightweight knit fabric


Sewing Instructions

It is very easy, just sew the sleeves and attach them to the armholes.

Use half of your back measurement to place the armhole. I lengthen the pattern about 3 1/2″.

It is easier to cut the fabric with a rotatory cutter and sew using a serger but a zigzag stitch on a regular sewing machine will also work.


I hope you like it!
