This is the Tabor V Neck sweater by Sew House Seven
I’d had the pattern for yonks. I’d had the fabric for yonks too!
I’m sure the fabric is a Fabworks purchase PC (pre-covid). It’s an unusual pale blue stretch crepe of a medium weight.
It reminded me of a sporty technical type fabric. I had loved the colour thinking it crisp and clean but it had taunted me from my stash for at least a couple of years.
I wanted a warm top without a band on the bottom, as many of my others seem to feature. A top to throw over skinny jeans but still look put together.
I think it’s made a rather nice quite structural Tabor V Neck sweater.
The Tabor V-Neck from Sew House Seven is described as a simple yet versatile style that is as dressed up or casual as you’d like to make it. It is a loose fitting, drop shoulder tee or sweater that is built for comfort while looking smart. There are so many different options for sleeves, necklines and body lengths. A deep v-neck or semi v-neck with either a mitred or lapped neckband. A curved hem or split hem with side vents or cropped straight hem. Short or long sleeves.
I went with the deep V neck with the deep neck band and side silts
I went with a size 6 although my bust put me nearer the next size, size 8. I didn’t think this fabric would pull off ‘oversize’ without looking like a tent.
The upper arms are as snug as I would like to go, so next time using a more traditional sweater knit fabric, I would size up on the arms.
The instructions were impeccable. The wide lapped v neck went up first time and very nicely.
The hem is finished with a cover stitch although a twin needle also works. I had to look up and practice doing corners with the cover stitch machine and in the most part, pulled it off, so learnt a new skill in the process. I followed this tutorial by Fadanista.
So all in all a simple quick satisfying make.
