I Am Patterns Lion Sweatshirt (Intermediate)

(1 review) Write a Review


I am a sweatshirt with puff sleeves. Ma classic shape is enhanced  by the volume of my sleeves.  I have 3 snap fasteners on the left shoulder to open and close.


All seam allowances are included in the pattern.

The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper.

The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step by step illustrated explanation guide.

Size 36 to 46. See sizing guide below.

    I AM Lion Sweatshirt

    Posted by Audrey Philson on 9th Jan 2019

    My feelings about this pattern are mixed. I liked the high neck and the snap closure but I was very disappointed with the drafting of the sleeves. They are symmetrical - ie no difference between the back and front - and there are no notches to denote where the gathering stitches should be. I like a gathered sleeve cap but these are enormous - the picture and the line drawing do not show how big they are. Also, the lower part of the sleeve doesn't hang properly - it appears twisted. Going back to my initial point about the sleeves - a gathered set in sleeve should not be symmetrical - this results in a badly fitting sleeve. Considering the cost of the pattern I really expected better drafting.
