Nähanleitung Pullover Tamara

Sewing instructions sweater Tamara

The oversized sweater can be perfectly combined with high-waist trousers and skirts. The high V-neckline fits nicely around the neck and the concealed slit in the side seam that has been moved to the back gives Tamara the modern boxy look.

Center Back Length = 52 - 56 cm

In these instructions, Tamara was sewn from a roughened sweat fabric.

Required material:

We recommend a knit fabric with a soft drape.

Sizes 34-50 outer fabric 1.40 m 140cm wide


Cut out the pattern pieces from your outer fabric. Lay the fabric right side up. Lay the selvedges parallel to the middle so that you can lay the front, back and neck edge 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. 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.

You need from fabric:

  • 1x back part in break
  • 1x front part in break
  • 1x neck panel in break
  • 2x sleeves in opposite directions

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!

Neaten the sides and hem of the back piece all around.

Neaten the sides and hem of the front piece all around.

Finish the hem of the sleeves.

Iron the seam allowance of the slits in the back part.

Iron the hem of the back piece.

Iron the hem of the front piece and the slits according to the pattern.

Lay the front and back pieces on top of each other, left sides facing, marker on marker, snaps on snaps, and stitch up the slit just under the edge up to the marking and then stitch down horizontally.

Stitch a stitch-foot-wide seam around the neckline, wrong sides together.

Sew the prepared neck edge, right sides together, into the neckline, neaten the seam allowances and iron them down. Cut the tip of the front piece so the seam allowance spreads out and flattens out nicely.
