The bundle includes the PDF patterns for I AM Rainbow Women and Mini.

I Am Rainbow, a sweatshirt where the only limit is your imagination. Choose from dozens of variations, with or without pockets.
I can be created in four different lengths for the women’s version (classic, above the knee, below the knee or mid calf) and in two different lengths for the kids’ version (classic or above the knee). I have three pockets to choose from: kangaroo, welt or in-seam. Make me with or without a zip. At the neckline, choose either a classic or overlapping hood or neckband. You can also sew a ribbed collar (available here for the women version and included in the pattern for kids version). I can be finished with or without ribbing.
