The Adrianne Sweater by DIBY.club has been out a short while so I know you have seen it around. With a size range from 00 to 36 everyone in the sewing community is wearing it. A lot of pattern companies take care of the misses sizes, but few cover the plus sizes. I feel like DIBY has the curvy population figured out and they are making us look even more fantastic!
This top comes with several options including 4 sleeve lengths, boat, scoop and cowl neck options. I choose to make the elbow length sleeve with the cowl neck which I love!
I made the size 30, but lengthened the pattern by 4 inches so I could wear it over leggings, feel comfortable and be work appropriate. It was easy to increase the length by splitting the pattern just above the highest points of the side bands. The pattern gives you directions for lengthening the bands to fit new size. The bands were much easier to install since the pattern comes with a step by step video on them! Thank you, Jessica!
Side detailing is great! I haven’t seen it elsewhere which helps me love it. FYI this piece is cut on grain and in my size I needed more than one yard to do it! Plan ahead! It kinda messed up my plan for the amazingly soft, mustard colored, double brushed poly fabric I had planned to use, but had only ordered one yard of it. Mentally kicking myself over only buying one yard.
Fear not, you will see it soon. I used it today on another shirt using the leftovers from this one. Kinda like a two for one deal! I love a good bargin!
Main fabric is “Dreamscape” in yellow. It is Poly Rayon Spandex blend from Sly Fox Fabric. I found it in the sale section! Bargin times Deux!
The Dark Gray is a heavy knit from Joann’s.
