The Sidney UK 18 – 28£15.00
Sidney is a boxy sweatshirt with a loose crew neck and finger skimming sleeves.
Skill level – beginner. Seam allowance 1cm.
To get the structured boxy shape of Sidney, choose a medium to heavy weight cloth. Sweat shirting, jersey loopback and our cotton jacquards are ideal. For the ribbing we sell pre cut strips which you can view here.
You will need:
Ribbing. Look at the table below if you have bought off the roll ribbing. If you are using our pre cut ribbing you will need 4 strips for sizes 18 – 28. You can either buy ribbing off the roll or our pre cut ribbing, you can see them all here. We have done a blog where we make suggestions on which ribs go with each jacquard colours – you can see that here. Note – you can leave the ribbing off of the bottom of the sweatshirt, in which case you will only need 2 strips for all sizes.
