Sew Straight and Gather’s Metro Pullover

Terri at Sew Straight and Gather has got another brilliant pattern for you.   I have an addiction to making sweatshirts and consider myself quite the hoodie connoisseur so when I say you need this pattern you better hop right on that!

There are two patterns- one for kids and one for women/men.  A pattern for the whole family is always going to get a lot of use in my house.

Each pattern comes with a hooded version or a cowl neck.  I made a couple of each just because I couldn’t stop.  Seriously, I want to see you make just one…

This cutie got the first one off the sewing machine.  I just adore his little face peeking out of that hood.  I love the unique hood and the fit of this sweatshirt.

I used Raspberry Creek Fabrics french terry in solid charcoal and oatmeal. The combo is neutral and the charcoal stripe hood lining just ties is all together.

Payton’s was next and sewed up in a flash.  She picked out this anti-pill fleece from Joann’s and it worked just lovely for this pattern.

She got the cross-over cowl version.  It’s nice and big which makes it so cozy and cute!

The girls and ladies version have this darling pleat detail in the back.  It gives it a little more flow and adds just that little something extra.

There is a curved hem or a banded bottom option.  Payton got the curved hem.  I loved her version so much I headed to the fabric store the next day so that I could make one in my size!

I wasn’t signed up to test Sophie’s size but just loved this pattern so much I knew she needed her own too!  She got a cowl with a banded bottom out of Joann’s fleece.

My first version was a beautiful eggplant french terry (from Raspberry Creek) hoodie version.

I’ve had this lightweight mustard/cream stripe in my stash and it was absolutely perfect with this eggplant.  I used it to line both the hood and the pocket.

I love the slim fit of this sweatshirt- not too baggy, not too tight!

I whipped up my cowl microfleece version in about a half hour after making the others.  Seriously, the cutest, quickest sew ever.  It is so cozy and I dreaded taking it off!

I think we’ve found a new favorite pattern.  The big boys are feeling left out so we might need to whip up a few more real soon!

Terri’s patterns are so clearly written and I love her clean, crisp layout.  She offers lots of tips and her tutorials make sewing a breeze even if you’re just a beginner to sewing.

Terri has graciously offered both patterns for $4 each or $8 (CAD, so us Americans will save even more!) for the bundle for a limited time.  Are you doing last minute Christmas sewing?  Or finished up and need a little selfish sew?  I’d waste no time and grab this pattern TODAY!  Pick up the kids version here or the ladies/mens here but really you should just get them both– you won’t regret it!
