The Tabor V neck sweater

I’m getting winter ready much earlier than usual this year!

Adding to my cosy sweater pile is the Tabor V neck jumper from Sew House Seven!

I picked up this pattern when it was released earlier this year with the intention of making lots of lightweight t-shirts from it. Unsurprisingly those tees didn’t materialise but the pattern was ready for me when I picked up with gorgeously soft grey check jersey from Woolcrest Textiles. (If you’re ever around Hackney, I’d definitely recommend going. It’s a complete maze inside but you can get some real bargains!).

The Tabor comes with A LOT of different variations – short sleeve, long sleeve, different width neck bands and bodice lengths. You can make a multitude of different garments just from this one pattern!

I chose to make Variation 4 which is the long sleeve sweater version with the wide neck band and high-low hem.

I really enjoyed sewing up this pattern. It was the first time I’d made a lapped V neckband and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. The split level hem is finished with mitred corners which I always love doing. There’s something so satisfying about them!

I think this is the only V neck sweater pattern I’ve made and I really like this neckline on me. This is definitely one to make again!
