The Wrap Up

This was my first time making the Whistler pullover, but it will be far from my last! I loved the look of this one and the multiple options made it really easy to customise to suit what I was looking for. 

I chose to make the shawl collar in tunic length with gathered front and curved hem. I knew that I would want to pair this with a pair of leggings and something like boots to dress it up or I could wear sneakers to dress it down. I decided that making it in a solid colour would make it a little more versatile to style, but I think this can look equally as good in a print as well.

It does say that it’s aimed at an intermediate sewist, but there is a full tutorial that Love Notions has put together, helping you understand. I really think anyone who is willing to give it a go and has some very basic pattern construction knowledge should be able to make one.

The fit was great. The XL/2XL fit well in the bust and hip areas without being too tight or too loose. I really enjoyed making the Love Notions Whistler Pullover and Hoodie. The end result is a comfortable and stylish top that I will definitely be wearing a lot.
