RAINBOW – Men / Women Duo

16,90

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

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 classic length for the men’s version. 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 men version). I can be finished with or without ribbing.
