New Pattern: The Linden Sweatshirt
I'm so excited to release the newest Grainline Studio pattern, the Linden Sweatshirt today! I now own quite a few of these and love them all, so far they've been getting a lot of wear. This is a super versatile pattern and one I think will get a lot of wardrobe rotation and has a lot of variation potential as well. A little info on the pattern from the pattern description: The Linden Sweatshirt gives a modern update to the classic sweatshirt. Featuring a relaxed fit, raglan sleeves, and a graceful slightly scooped neckline, this sweatshirt is perfect for fall layering. View A features long sleeves with cuffs and falls to the mid hip with a lower ribbing band while View B hits at the high hip and has short sleeves. You can also mix and match sleeve and body lengths to create multiple versions of this sweatshirt. Techniques involved include sewing with knits, straight seams, and attaching ribbing. The pattern includes instructions to help you whether you're using a serger or a sewing machine and provides tips for getting the look of a ready made garment. As usual the Linden Sweatshirt is drafted to our high standards with clear instructions that will result in a beautiful finished garment. At the moment the Linden Sweatshirt is only available in PDF download format due to a printing delay that pushed back the arrival of the patterns till the end of October. Rather than waiting till then to release I've decided to release now with the PDF and pre-orders for the printed version. Any printed Linden patterns ordered will ship after Wed October 29th. I apologize for this delay but unfortunately there wasn't anything I could do in this situation, sometimes you've got to just make the best of what comes your way! I originally drafted up this sweatshirt back in March, when it seemed like the weather was never going to warm up, which gave me plenty of time this summer to do a bit of tweaking and perfecting. I've also made the pattern up in a large variety of materials in addition to the recommended sweatshirt type materials (t-shirt jersey, stretch woven wool, activewear knit, and sweater knit) so I'll be sharing some of those in the future along with some fun variations. I'll be sharing some finished sweatshirts as well as some serious sweatshirt inspiration all week so check back tomorrow for more, and in the mean time, you can pick up your Linden Sweatshirt pattern here!
