RAINBOW • Pattern
By I AM PATTERNS, Rainbow is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: I Am Rainbow, a sweatshirt where the only limit is your imagination. Choose from 70 variations with pockets and 26 versions without. Make me in your favourite length: classic, above the knee, below the knee or mid calf. I have three pockets to choose from: kangaroo, welt or in-seam. Make me with or without a zip. At the neckline, choose either a classic or overlapping hood or neckband. I can be finished with or without ribbing.
Fabric Suggestions: Mid weight Jersey, interlock knit, neoprene, French Terry, sweater knit. Ribbing: ribbing by the meter or the same fabric used for the garment (this pattern is not designed for using pre-cut ribbing bands).
