For version two of this sweatshirt, I’ve gone down three sizes from what was recommended in the size chart and added a little extra width at the hip. The fit is much better, especially through the shoulders. No way near as baggy as yesterday’s version. With the narrower shoulders, the sleeve came out to be the right length. I’ve still tapered the sleeve a little and reduced the cuff with.
The fabric I’ve used on this one is a printed sweatshirt fleece with a brushed back. For the cuffs, I’ve used a beefy cotton-lycra jersey. The lines on the print were a little wavy but matched up at the side seam reasonably well.
And now for today’s sketch….
