On my sewing table: The toaster sweater by Sew House Seven

Sew House Seven Toaster sweater And She Made

As the winter months draw nearer, there’s one pattern I’m so excited about. It’s the Toaster sweater by Sew House Seven and, specifically, version two of the pattern.

It’s a lovely funnel neck thin jumper that is perfect for wearing under coats and with jeans. I love funnel neck jumpers anyway at this time of year and, with a pattern to make my own, I’ll definitely be making a few of these in the near future.

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect funnel neck jumper pattern all autumn. I have two favourite high street ones from last year but they’re starting to get a bit bobbly and this is the perfect replacement pattern.

Here’s some inspiration from the high street for what I have in mind:

And here’s how other bloggers have done it:

As for the fabric, I actually had some fabric from Fabric Land in mind for this. However, a few days after buying it, I got a phone call to say they’d run out and wouldn’t be restocking. I’m so sad about this as it seemed to be the perfect fabric for this pattern.

Here’s a pic of the fabric in question – if anyone knows where I can buy the same fabric elsewhere, please let me know!

But, alas, I’ve also planned a few different versions. A navy blue fabric (I’m thinking a ponte de roma fabric), a mustard yellow and a raspberry red. I’ve also got my eye on this grey ribbed jersey and navy striped fabric from Guthrie and Ghani too, for some thinner Toaster sweaters.

Also, a couple of weeks ago, Seamwork’s newest pattern, the Sadie, was released. This is pretty similar to the Toaster sweater, but a little bit looser and longer if that’s more your thing!

Do you have any Toaster sweaters in mind? It seems as though it’s a staple make for sewists this year.
