Sitka Sweatshirt from Hey June Handmade

A bit of a sweatshirt/sweater hybrid and great for using up scraps!

The Sitka Sweatshirt from Hey June Handmade is a hybrid of sweatshirt and sweater. This sweatshirt is more cropped in overall length and in sleeve length compared to a regular oversized sweatshirt. It fits closer to the body, but it is not too tight. The top has a casual drop sleeve, providing extra room through the bust for a comfortable fit. The sleeves are designed to hit just past the wrist bone, and the hem is designed to hit at the high hip, just covering the waistband on mid-rise jeans. The crewneck sits higher up without being restricting.

It’s perfect for casual dressing when temps are low. And it’s a great pattern for using up scraps, (especially for view C). With the divided sections on the front and back pieces, there’s ample opportunity for colour blocking. Use different fabrics that coordinate to create an ombre effect, or even use your favourite team’s colours! The pattern is available in two size ranges, 0-20 in a B cup and 14-30 in a D cup. It also includes several introductory pages with information on picking the best size, performing girth and length adjustments if necessary. Plus basic alterations, choosing fabric, and helpful sewing notes.
