The Julia sweater for women #6

The Julia sweater sewing pattern for kids, teens and adults by Compagnie M. #compagniem

Today I gave my first workshop in Ghent at Liesellove’s place! With 7 enthusiastic workshoppers and the sweetest host ever, I had a great time. I’ll show you the beautiful creations later on Facebook, but first I would love to tell you a short story on my ‘Liesellove Julia’. When Lies posted this fabric on her website, I just HAD TO HAVE IT! I don’t like to order fabric online, but this punta di roma just stole my heart. When the fabric arrived, I was even more enthusiastic! The colors are amazing and it’s super soft! The back side of this fabric is solid black, so I used just one fabric to make this Julia…

When the Julia was finished, I tried it on and… it was too small at the sleeves! I used the same pattern as for the other Julia sweaters but since this fabric has little vertical stretch, I just couldn’t get my arms. No matter how hard I tried! ;) So the only solution was to cut the sleeves to a short version! I finished the sleeves with a small band and I think it’s perfect like this.

I couldn’t stand the idea that beautiful fabrics like these would not be suitable for the Julia sweater so that’s why I thought of a solution. As explained before a split / front panel and turning the direction of the sleeve gives a perfect fit! When the fabric really has almost no vertical stretch, you can also make the sleeve a little bit wider. That’s an extra tutorial that I added in the instructions. So from now on you can start dreaming of punt a di roma Julia sweaters. Yay!

The good news: although I received this fabric from Lies weeks ago, she still has some left! I would say: just buy a piece of this fabric! It’s a must have! Amazing to work with, super comfortable to wear. This Julia is my personal favourite. Just because it’s sooooo soft!
