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.
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
