An LB Pullover in one of my favourite shades of green… I’m calling it LB Green!
The LB Pullover is one of those versatile patterns that can be sewn in a stable knit or a woven. For this version I opted to use some leftover linen from Sharon’s Garden Party Dress.
I adore the LB Pullover’s turtle neck, but as it doesn’t allow for easy scarf wearing (a favourite pastime of mine!) I opted to finish the neckline with bias binding as a facing. As my orange linen LB Pullover only just fits over my head, I removed a 1/4″ (6mm) from the neckline before applying the binding.
My Instagram followers may remember that I added a little bit of belly button fluff (fabric selvedge) to denote the back of this top. It’s proved to be very helpful when dressing. So far I’m finding LB Green to be a great trans-seasonal addition to my wardrobe… and gosh Melbourne’s autumn weather has been unpredictable. It’s currently pouring with rain!
I’ve sewn, by not photographed, a stripey knit version of this pattern, which you might have caught a glimpse of on Instagram over the weekend. When I find a pattern that works for me, I tend to sew several different iterations.
I’m a serious repeat pattern offender and an occasional hair fluffer-upperer (a technical term). Do you sew multiple versions of the same pattern? What denotes a good hair day for you?
