Main fabric: French terry, sweatshirt, or any medium weight knit material with a bit of stretch.
Contrast fabric: (so many options!) Jersey, t-shirt material, lightweight french terry, rib knit, ponte roma, double knit.
It’s also a great opportunity to stash bust and use up some bits left over from previous projects! You can use the same material as the main fabric, however, the cuffs will have a closer fit.
Fabric requirements (for 1.5m / 60″ fabric):
Ava – Cara (31″ – 35″ / see size chart image)
Main: 1.5m (1.64 yards)
Contrast 0.6m (0.66 yards)
Dee – Gia (37″ – 43″ / see size chart image)
Main: 1.8m (2 yards)
Contrast 0.8m (0.87 yards)
– 50cm x 14cm fusible interfacing
– 3 buttons for the cowl (Example uses 19mm Prym cover buttons)
– 1 small button for the inner cowl. It will not be seen and does not need to match the others. A good opportunity to use a spare dress shirt button!
High Bust: 31″ – 43″
Use your High Bust to get the best fit across your neckline and shoulders.
To get your High Bust measurement, measure around your body, directly under your underarms.
Fitting tips for larger busts/cup sizes: You would then do a Full Bust Adjustment (FBA) only if your full bust measurement is in a higher size category to your high bust.

First of all, for print at home options, print only page 1 and check the box measures 10cm x 10cm. When you print the pattern, print at 100% (make sure it isn’t scaling). If this measurement is correct you can print the remaining pages. Assemble by cutting along the dotted lines & tape the pages together.
Or, you can just buy a copyshop version from here and we will do the printing and posting for you.
