Brunswick Pullover - Gift Sewing

Gift sewing part 3, this is for Kaitlyn, my youngest, by 4 minutes but always the youngest!

Kaitlyn loves oversized shirts, preferably sherpa or fleece.  I went with sweatshirt fleece and French terry.  The stripe is French terry, from stash purchased from Joann's a couple years ago.   The orange is a sweatshirt fleece from Style Maker Fabrics.  I intended using a bit of leftover from my Page Hoodie but a mistake on my part lead to a help me please email to Michelle.  The sweatshirt fleece was sold out but Style Makers had a remnant piece less than a yard and just what I needed to finish this project.  The project was Hey June's Brunswick Pullover.  I had the intention of View A with the side buttons (photo from Hey June site)

One problem with that the placket for this option should be made from a cotton  and I had the idea of using the sweatshirt fabric.  Oh, way to thick and just wasn't working out the best.  I went on and decided to put on the snaps, well, I put them on the back and not the front and everything was all messed up.

Next idea, color blocking and that is how Michelle saved the day.  I think it looks great and if I didn't tell you about my mistake you would have just thought I planned it this way.  The seam of the stripe and the orange is a bit wavy but I am hoping this will smooth out after a couple of washings.

I love the sleeve pocket

The split hem detail, which I added after having to color block and correct my mistake!

I did find the Brunswick to run large and will go down a size or two.  Kaitlyn is a size smaller than me, so I was judging the sizing on me.  I took in the side seams a bit to make it smaller.  She was excited with the pullover and her sisters said, yes, Kaitlyn that looks just like you.


  1. Cute top and nice save! I can see why Kaitlyn loves it :-)

  2. I'm in the middle of a Brunswick right now and I also found it runs large. According to my measurements I should have made a 12/14 but finished garment measurements led me to make an 8. It will be plenty big enough. I like your fabric combo!

My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
