Plus Size DIY: High Collar Sweater Using Simplicity 8738



Hey guys!

This weekend I'm sharing one of my favorite makes of the year so far, this super easy high collar sweater. I used a burnt orange neoprene fabric that I picked up from a trip to New York. I have found that most people who sew have a love or hate relationship with neoprene, but I fall in the love category. 

I love the structured drape that can be achieved with neoprene but in the past I have stuck to making full circle skirts with neoprene which are absolutely stunning and flattering on most body types. But for this project, I wanted to try something different, even though I bought this fabric with something else in mind. 

Pattern: Simplicity 8738 view B, I cut an XXL

Modifications: I stayed pretty true to the pattern for this look, although I could have cut a size XL but I wanted an oversized fit. Since I like to push my sleeves up to my elbow, I made the sleeves fitted because the original cut was for a boxy sleeve look. I also made the back a bit lower than the front for an extra bit of detail. 

Pros/Cons: Since I am a lazy sewer who likes quick rewards, this pattern provided just that...a quick reward. I can definitely see myself making multiples of this pattern, with different fabric choices since it's so easy to make. 

Just like here, I mostly pair this sweater with ripped jeans and booties, or sneakers. Easy peasy and super chic.
I really want to make a sweater dress with this pattern, also using a neoprene fabric...maybe electric blue? I think that'll look stunning. 












Till next time!
