Simplicity 8529

November 24, 2017

I LOVE this pattern. I few weeks ago I stopped by JoAnn’s when Simplicity patterns were on sale and was lucky enough to get the last copy of 8529. I decided to try this pattern out using some of my beloved purple sweater knit from the Fabric Joint in Decatur, GA. I cut a size medium in view A. Although size small would have worked, I wanted an oversized look. I serged everything and it went together lickety-split. This is super easy and I am in love with the finished product.

I was, in fact, so smitten with this pattern that I made a second version out of some bulky wool sweater-knit that I purchased at Metro Textiles in NYC during Pattern Review Weekend 2017.

I feel like it’s the perfect fabric for this sweater.

People, Simplicity 8529 is the perfect pattern. If you need to recover from a stressful Thanksgiving day, sew 8529. If you need a palate cleanser from a sewing project gone awry, sew 8529. If you want a fun, satisfying day in your sewing room, sew 8529. If you want a super-cute new sweater, sew 8529. Bottom line, sew 8529. You will not regret it.

Gobble, gobble.
