A random #burdachallenge2018 post on IG made me aware of this BurdaStyle kids sweater pattern.
Surprisingly I haven’t paid too much attention to kids sewing patterns in BurdaStyle Magazine.
I decided to give this a go because of the simplicity of the pattern.
No neck seam but just the shoulder and side seams only.
I used a fleece lined scuba fabric that I bought last year from B&M Fabrics (Leeds Market). This was one (pair) of my January #burdachallenge2018 makes and I was happy with how they turned out.
I used hot pink cuffing for the sleeve band and green jersey for the hem band. The other alteration was to omit the zip. My fabric had more than enough stretch to easily go over the head. With the zip this pattern would work with wovens.
They got the seal of approval from the twins and they love their sweaters. The sizing was spot on. I traced size 110 for their 104cms height. They will be wearing these for at least a couple of more years yet.
I am now going through my collection of magazines with a view to finding more kids patterns that I can try out. Have you sewn with the kids patterns from Burda?
Thanks for stopping by! And until next time, Happy Sewing!
Peace and love,
