Quilted knit Linden

More cold weather sewing today! It’s been a rainy morning here, after a few hot and hazy days, so I’m definitely looking forward to colder temperatures. 

I really decided to make this sweatshirt on a whim. It’s something I don’t ever see myself wearing here in Singapore since it never gets cold enough for it. But once I got the idea in my head, I had to do it! 

I already had the Linden sweatshirt pattern, and the two short sleeved versions are in regular rotation in my wardrobe. This is my first long-sleeved one though. I was heavily influenced by this version. I like the split hem detail a lot, but I’ve only just realized I forgot to get a good shot of it! 

I posted a pic of it on Instagram, but that was when the hem was just pinned in place. 

I lengthened the pattern pieces about three inches, I think, with the back piece longer than the front.  The fit is pretty good, and there’s enough room under the sweatshirt to pull on a t-shirt first. The really nice thing about the Linden is how quick it is to sew up once you’ve figured out your sizing. 


I got this knit on clearance from Miss Matatabi when I got some birthday loot for myself. It’s very cozy and I’m looking forward to making good use of it when we travel at the end of the year.

    Awesome fabric! Your Linden looks great! I’m totally sewing cold weather clothes, too, even though it’s hot, hot, hot in Bangkok… is it weird to sew a flannel shirt just for a one week trip to the U.S.?

      No! It’s not at all weird!! It’s what I’m doing!!!

    I love this sweatshirt and I’m planning a similar one soon. I have some French terry waiting for me to find the time. I’m on a bit of an Archer kick right now and then I need a few more Lindens to get me set for winter!

      Thanks, Teri! Would love to see your versions, and your Archers too!
