I’ve just whipped up a fleecy top using the new zero waste Xanthea t-shirt pattern. The pattern comes with a long sleeve option.
The Xanthea pattern is in my shop with 25% off for the next two weeks.
If you’re thinking of making a fleecy top from a Xanthea pattern, here’s the ribbing measurements based on this top:
- Neck rib measurements are already in the pattern.
- Cuff rib cut at 4.5″ wide and for sizes 8-10-12-14-16-18+ cut at 7.25″-7.5″-7.75″-8″-8.25″-8.5″ long. Cut the sleeves 2″ shorter to allow for the rib cuff.
- Waist rib cut at 6.5″ wide and for sizes 8-10-12 cut at 38″-40″-42″ long. Keep adding 2″ for every size.
I cut a size according to the bust measurement, but I could have gone up a size or two and it would have still looked fine. I could also have cut a wider sleeve for a slouchier top.
It would be easy to add a hood to this pattern instead of neck rib, for a hoodie.
