Love Notions Sloane Sweater


Fall is here and that means sweaters and sweatshirts are taking over our closets!  The newest Love Notions patterns are perfect!  The Women’s Sloane got a revamp and while she was at it she added a girls version too! (affl. links)

This post contains affiliate links.  I became a Love Notions Affiliate AFTER falling in love with her patterns, testing process, and attention to details.  Purchasing through the links provides me with a little kick back that of course gets spent on more fabric 😉


There are two different views- view A is a relaxed fit, curved hem top and view B is a boxy fit with bands (similar to your favorite sweatshirt).  There are tons of options too!  You can add a contrast yoke, elbow patches, kangaroo pocket and a hood.  You’ll want to sew up a handful just to try them all!


I sewed up this version pre-revision and blogged about it over on the CaliFabrics blog.  This super soft french terry version is one of my favorite makes!  The fit didn’t change much during testing but many of the options are new including extended sizing and a FBA piece (so nice to have the work done for you!).  This is a simple view B with lace added to the yoke seams.


I had just enough left of the rose french terry for this fun top for my girl.  She picked some camo french terry (from LA) as a coordinate and I love this combo sooooo much.  Pink and camo is just a sweet little match!


I love that these tops coordinate but aren’t exact copies.  I’m sure we won’t wear them at the same time but it was pretty fun to get pics with my mini me!



Of course lil sis needed one too!  Are you scrambling to fill in all the gaps in your kids cold weather wardrobe?  I was shocked to see this girly had outgrown most of her long sleeved tops.  A plain view B was a quick and easy solution!  This is a quilted knit from Hobby Lobby last year.  It’s a bit thicker than the recommended fabric but I love the boxier fit.  The perfect loose fitting sweatshirt without being sloppy!


The grey and flannel version was an early tester version.  The final pattern is a bit more slim but we still love this one!  I can’t get enough of plaid flannel and french terry together- especially this mustard and grey combo.  You might recognize it from this rad Halifax of mine 🙂


That yoke and those elbow patches are pretty fantastic!

This will be such a staple pattern for us.  There are so many possibilities, such a great basic pattern that can be hacked to fit your needs.


I’ve got a little sneak peek of an easy hack that I’ll be sharing with you on the CaliFabrics blog real soon.  I’ll link it here when it’s up!


Make sure to grab your copies on sale through Thursday, October 19th!  (bundle, girls, women’s– affl. links)


Club Sloane Sweater


I have been so excited for the new Club line buffalo check.  I have a serious plaid crush right now and this new print is just perfection!


I used the french terry version with the Club dots in cotton/lycra to make me a Love Notions Sloane Sweater (affl. link).



I love the color blocking option with this pattern.  I used a simple coral french terry but I have a solid version with a woven plaid contrast I can’t get out of my head!


I was inspired by this pin.  What are your thoughts on the boxy sweater/sweatshirt trend?  I honestly can’t decide if I like this silhouette on me.  I love that it’s different from my other sweatshirts and it is beyond comfortable!  I think paired with skinny jeans it’s flattering and cute but hey, I totally want to wear it with my favorite joggers and I’m afraid I’ll look like I stepped out of the retirement home in my sweatsuit.


This pattern comes with a slimmer view and high-low shirttail hem option also.  It really is a versatile pattern.  There are some amazing sweater knit versions out there.


This new Club french terry sews like a dream and is so soft!  I can’t wait to pair this buffalo check with a floral for my girls.  And those dots!  Possibly my favorite fabric ever!  It’s buttery and coordinates with EVERYTHING!


I’m going to leave you with my late night sassy pants pose!  Make sure you pick up the new Club Line from Raspberry Creek Fabrics and the Sloane Sweater for some serious comfy perfection!
