Wild Child: Otium Sweater

I have finally had a chance to slow down on sewing and testing to get ready for the holidays. However, I have left a little bit of room to test a couple of patterns. This gorgeous pattern to give you a stylish sweater with loads of options from Sofiljantes.I tested the girls version, but she also made a women’s version which means that you can make it for you and the little girls you love in your life.

Pattern Features: 

  • Sizes 12m to 14 y
  • 3 sleeve lengths
  • 3 styles: simple, bow back, diagonal front pocket
  • Arm, neck and waistbands
  • Designed for knits
  • Layered to print only the size/sizes you need
  • Measurement and yardage charts (available to see before purchase)
  • Simple and clear directions so help the beginner to confident sewer
I made the pattern in a thin t-shirt knit for the base, ribbed knit for the bands and a ruffled knit for some fun detail for the sleeves and bow back. I love to mix patterns and colors, but even I was a little scared by my combo. It ended up turning out perfect! Just as fun and wild as my crazy Amelie! It is perfect for a sassy, full of life 8 year old!
One of the fun things about Annemieke’s patterns is the names are latin, and all translate to a fun meaning about the look or use. “Otium” is translated in a broad way to leisure time. So basically, you can wear this shirt for whatever occasion you choose. You can definitely dress it down, or even use for pjs and loungewear, or dress it up the details or fabric. My next venture is going to be trying a thin microfleece and a fun play with the bow.
Since it is a new release, you can get it HERE for a short time for $6.50 or buy the bundle of both patterns for $13.00. So hurry up and buy them while you can. With the sizes and options, you can use this pattern all year round. 
Thanks for stopping buy and don’t for get to share your finished projects in Sofiljantes Sew and Show Facebook Group
