I Am Rainbow, a sweatshirt where the only limit is your imagination. Choose from 70 variations with pockets and 26 versions without. Make me in your favourite length: classic, above the knee, below the knee or mid calf. 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. I can be finished with or without ribbing.

PDF PATTERN

All seam allowances are included in the pattern.

The different pieces don’t overlap with each other. Once printed and assembled, simply cut the pattern at your size and start sewing.

The folder contains the digital sewing pattern in layered A4, US Letter, A3 and A0 formats along with two files for projection. To accompany, there is a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.

Digital pattern formats:

A4 and US Letter – print at home – 33 sheets

A3 – print at work (we won’t say anything) – 15 sheets

A0 file (aka: copyshop, printshop, wide files) – print at a copy shop – 2 sheets

Projection – 1 file with pattern pieces on white background and 1 file with pattern pieces on fuchsia background. Both files are layered.

The file will be emailed to you upon payment. You will also be able to access the file anytime on your iampatterns.fr account. You need to open the .zip file on a computer.

Size 34 to 52. See sizing guide below.

PAPER PATTERN

All seam allowances are included in the pattern.

The pattern is enclosed in an envelope. It contains the sewing pattern along with a step-by-step illustrated explanation guide.

The different pieces overlap with each other so you will need to trace the pattern on paper. If you prefer a ready-to-cut pattern, try the pdf version as pieces do not overlap with each other.
