This sweater is made from plush “Luxe fleece” from Joann fabrics. It is thick, soft, and has minimal stretch. I used a pattern to make this sweater, but with some heavy alterations; the arms on the pattern are much too short for some reason, even on a short person like me, so I added cuff at the bottom to lengthen the sleeve. I also altered the length and shape of the bottom because I found the original design to be unflattering.
Assembly was quite simple; the whole coat is only 6 pieces, sewn together on the serger. The edges were finished on the regular sewing machine with a wide overcast stitch. The fleece won’t fray, so I didn’t need a folded hem or a serged edge. I chose a simple overcast because it would keep the edges neat, hide any unevenness, but not add bulk or change the drape of the fabric.
