One of my favorite sweatshirt patterns is the Annabeth from 5 out of 4. I have made several and I wear one of them nearly every time I go to walk in the woods. Like so many of my favorite tops, they are worn out, colors faded and now just too big. I decided I deserved a new one. Let’s do this!
I have used French Terry for most of the Annabeths I have made myself or for my mom, but this one is Waffle knit. This is a new fabric for me to sew and I have been curious to try it out. This rich chocolate color is called Farrah. The website also calls it Cappuccino, but I think we should call it delicious. It is such a lovely rich brown color and I love it so much already. This will quickly become a closet staple. I seem to be sewing a lot of browns lately, maybe I am in fashion and don’t even know. I just love all the shades of brown right now.
Let’s talk about sewing this waffle knit. It has enough weight to be a nice fabric, it didn’t curl or fray when I cut, and it went through my serger without issues. It is a poly, rayon, lycra blend with 4 way stretch so it will work for loads of knit garments. #sewhappy I even had enough spools of matching threads that my seams are actually brown. 🙂 If you want to grab some for yourself, here is the link.
Let’s get back to my pattern deets. I will give you all the pattern details next, but I have made the tunic length with long sleeves which I shorted by 1 inch. I added regular cuffs and the neckband. I did the solid bodice instead of the color blocked bodice. I sewed the 3x with the included FBA and graded out to a 4x.
Here are all the pattern details for you.
