LB the fourth
This is my fourth LB Pullover by Paper Theory… but it’s been a long time between LB sews. I sewed my last three in 2018 soon after the pattern was released.
For this version I sewed one size bigger than previously… as I feel I over-fitted my first two linen versions (here and here). Isn’t hindsight a wonderful thing?
Other the other hand, my striped jersey LB Pullover was worn until the spandex in the jersey failed… and then I wore it some more as a pyjama top!
I’m really pleased with the fit of this version. I adore the fabric too. It’s not my usual colours or print, but I was just so drawn to it. It’s a cotton/linen from Japanese fabric brand Kokka which I purchased from The Cloth Shop (work) last year.
The fabric is a medium weight, so I bound the neckline with a light weight grey cotton binding to reduce bulk.
This was a simple sew, but oh so satisfying. The LB Pullover is a great pattern that results in a garment for easy, everyday wearing. It’s also a pattern that can be sewn in a variety of fabrics. I highly recommend.
Pattern: Paper Theory’s LB Pullover

Alterations: I added 1.5″ (4cm) to the length of the top, left-off the turtle neck, cut the size 6 front neckline, bound the neckline and performed my usual 3/8″ (1cm) forward shoulder adjustment
