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.
