This month, for our Women’s Complete Dressmaking kit, I have chosen the wonderful High Cuff Sweater by The Assembly Line. This sweater is the perfect combination of being stylish design, flattering in shape and comfortable. A top that you can dress up or down as required.
This top has the perfect marriage of woven and knit fabric giving it that elegant and timeless feel. It has the gorgeous design feature of the curved bottom cuff which is higher at the back creating a feminine look. A perfect beginner’s make, that can be sewn using a regular sewing machine using a simple zig zag stitch for attaching the ribbing or it can, of course, be made up on an overlocker if you have one. This High Cuff Sweater is a great beginner’s project or, if you are more confident, a very quick and easy make. Once you have made one you will be whipping up a second top in no time! Because of it’s classic design this sweater will become a favourite and timeless wardrobe staple.
I have chosen to create this complete dressmaking kit in two colour ways, one pattern and the other plain. Both are made using a viscose linen for the main body and tubular ribbing for the cuffs, waistband and neck band. The fluidity in this fabric allows ease of movement and hangs beautifully, creating a fabulous top that is smart, versatile and bang on trend.
Pattern Viscose Linen: Dark Navy Base 70% Linen 30% Viscose, width 145cm.
Plain Viscose Linen: Dark Indigo Blue 78% Viscose 22% Linen, width 137cm, Weight 240gsm.
