Cut out the pattern pieces from your outer fabrics. Lay the fabric right side up. Lay the selvedges parallel to the center so that you can lay the front, back, yoke and collar in the fold. The pattern pieces should all be face up. Always align the grain arrow on all pieces in the same direction and parallel to the selvage of the fabric. Transfer all the notches from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk and mark the ends of the darts. Pinch the seam allowance in the fold of the fabric because this is always a center. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, etc. Transfer these either with chalk or pins.

Sewing instructions:

To sew this sweater you need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, alternatively you can use the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to finish the raw edges.

In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specially marked are 1 cm wide!
Happy sewing!

We start by sewing the bust darts. A simple, straight dart is closed and sewn on the wrong side of the fabric, snap by snap, tapering from the widest point to the tip (so that the dart does not bag) on ​​the wrong side of the fabric, following the exact transfer of the pattern and carefully observing the marking. Draw a line with the tailor's chalk beforehand so that you don't sew too much or too little and finish the side seam nicely straight. So that you don't have to bartack at the top, you can sew the last centimeter with a very small stitch. You iron the dart content upwards. You can then neaten the cut edges of the dividing seam individually in the front and side sections. Also neaten the seam allowance of the opening edge of the pocket bags (4x). Work here in the opposite direction to the opposite side of the body.

Now we come to the pockets in the front dividing seam. The pocket bags are sewn together edge to edge with a 1cm seam allowance on the front and side parts. Pay attention here, right side of fabric to right side of fabric, so that the right side of fabric can be seen in the pocket bag. Iron the seam allowances apart.

Now you can close the dividing seam from the top up to the markings and the pocket bag in one go. Pay attention to the ironed seam allowance.

The entire seam allowance is now ironed to the center front so that the opening into the pocket works smoothly.

Sew the entire front piece, right sides together, to the front yoke, neaten the seam allowances and press them up.

Now you can do the two back parts: the back centers are trimmed individually and then sewn together, right sides together. Iron the seam allowances apart.

Bring the prepared back piece together with the back yoke, neaten the seam allowances and iron them down.

The front and back become one: sew the shoulder seams together, right sides facing, neaten the seam allowances together and iron them to the back. Do the same with the side seams.

Then sew the underarm seam together and neaten the seam allowances together. Press the seam allowance towards the back.

Now sew the sleeve, right sides together, into the body. Pay attention to the notches and use the V-notch as a guide to which side which sleeve belongs to. Overcast the sleeve seam allowances together.

Neaten the hems of the body and sleeves, turn them up at the snap and topstitch them.

For the collar, the center back is sewn together, right sides facing, the seam allowances ironed apart and the collar placed in the fold, left sides facing, at the snaps.

The prepared collar is now sewn, right sides together, to the neckline in the torso. Make sure that the collar seam is on the center back of the sweater. Neat the seam allowances together.
