Hello, friends! I am so excited to announce the release of a new sewing pattern. Hooray!
It's a tee. It's a dress. Something for boys and girls.
The jersey is a classic look for boys of course, but we all love it on girls too, right? Whether your girl prefers to be part of the cheer squad or jump in the game, the Game Day Jersey pattern has a look for her.
This pattern includes a unisex football-inspired tee with yoked top and a variety of sleeve lengths: sleeveless, short, three-quarter and full-length. It's got a slick rounded hem and sporty straight sleeves. The fit is far from boxy but there's plenty of room to move.
To score extra points, there’s a dress too!
With a higher waist and an a-line skirted bottom that hits at the knee, and the option of a full skirt or a skirt with sporty stripes down the side.
Designed for stretch knits, this could comfortably become your child's year-round uniform!
The Game Day Jersey is a premium quality children's sewing pattern and includes:
- a digitally graded and drafted pattern for sizes 2 to 10 years
- markings, instructions and an assembly guide for easily printing and assembling the 24 page pattern
- digitally drafted, clear illustrations for sewing each step
- tips for sewing with knits
- detailed yardage/meters charts
- detailed body measurements (in inches and cm) and finished garment measurements
This pattern was tested by nearly two dozen sewists in the US, Europe, Australia, and Mexico--it's suitable to print and use! (Looking for a testing roundup soon.)
The Game Day Jersey sewing pattern includes the following variations:
The Game Day Jersey Tee includes sleeveless, short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve variations.
The Game Day Jersey Dress includes sleeveless, short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve variations and options for a full skirt or a skirt with a sport stripe down the side.
While The Game Day Jersey is a simple sewing project the possibilities truly never end. Play around with contrasting fabric for the yoke or sleeves or skirt or side stripes to keep things fun. No matter your pick, I’m sure your child will be a big fan of The Game Day Jersey!
This pattern is suitable for sewing with light (but not too light--nothing near tissue) and medium weight knit fabrics such as jersey, interlock, lighter weight French terry and double knits such as ponte and scuba knit. A high quality knit with good recovery will yield the best results.
Speaking of knits, here are all the details on the combinations my girls are wearing here. Audrey's dress was sewn with a teal knit from Jo-Ann and Little Bloomy Dream organic cotton jersey from Lillestoff. Scarlett's tee is sewn with some of the Little Bloomy Dream as well as some Fawn Silhouette jersey from Girl Charlee. Her skirt (which is self-drafted, and potentially a future pattern) is sewn with the fabrics I used for Audrey's dress. Tess's dress is sewn with "Variete" from Liandlo and yellow interlock from Jo-Ann.
