Have you seen the new Noord T-Shirt and Sweatshirt sewing pattern? It’s a sporty knit top with interesting lines that offer plenty of opportunity for customizing, color-blocking and scrap-busting. In this pot, two members of the Advisors Circle share their cozy Noords.
For my Noord, I wanted a cozy sweatshirt for the coming cold months. I used a printed cotton/Lycra French terry. I’ve had my eye on this fabric for a long time and knew the Noord pattern would be the perfect pairing. I looked for a black French terry contrast fabric with a similar weight and amount of lycra.
This pattern is fun because you have so many choices on how to color-block the pieces. It’s great for scrap busting! I only used two fabrics for my version. I used black contrast for the neckband, the front V, the under sleeves, the shirt side and the cuffs. I also used black contrast for the hem facing on the inside, and I really liked this hem finish. I measured a Medium D cup in the bust and Large in the waist and hips, but I ended up just sewing the Large A/B cup without any adjustments. I love the sporty look to this pattern. It’s perfect for weekends and running errands!
