When Mind the Maker were about to release organic brushed sweatshirt fabrics, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to finally make myself some ultimate lockdown loungewear clothes.
I've chosen Adrianna sewing pattern by Viki Sews and i am so happy with this choice.
Viki Sews are PDF patterns and they are incredibly cheap, £1.10 to be precise. You select your height and then your size within the height range. The patterns and instructions are in Russian, but there are plenty of images in the instructions and if you are an experienced sewer, I am sure you can get away with it.
I found the length too long, so I shortened the body by 17cm and also shortened the sleeves by 6cm.
The pattern of the hood when printed looks so big, but when sewn it is the perfect size. You have an option on inserting a drawstring in the hood, but i couldn't find the right colour so left it out.
I used main fabric for sleeve cuffs and waistband as i did not have matching ribbing, but i love the uniform look of it.
My next sewing project is matching joggers, again by Viki Sews - Nika. I cant wait to wear them.
If you love the pattern but are struggling with Russian instructions, feel free to message me, i will happily translate where needed.
