Ebba is an oversize sweatshirt in a comfortable fit. The sweatshirt is sewn with a collar and zipper that extends about halfway down. You can also sew a neckband instead.

The sweatshirt can be finished in 3 ways: with a waistband; hemmed; or hemmed with a drawstring. The two hemmed versions are somewhat cropped.

Ebba can be sewn in knit fabrics, preferable medium to medium heavy weight. Think college, fleece, knit jacquard, ponte or similar fabrics.

But one of the awesome things about Ebba is that you can also make it in wovens! Fabrics without any stretch at all. And thanks to the generous fit, Ebba can also be worn as light outerwear.

Skill level: 2/3 (Level guide).

  • Knit fabric in medium to medium heavy weight (approx. 200-340 g/m2), for example college, french terry, sweatshirt, knit jacquard, ponte di roma and fleece. The fabric should have good recovery, meaning that if you stretch it and then let go, it will return to its original width. Alternatively woven fabric without stretch (only if you’re sewing Ebba with a zipper), light to medium weight (approx. 110-270 g/m2). But still, one would also need ribbing fabric (see below).
  • Ribbing fabric  (or other knit fabric with very good stretch and recovery), with 70-80% stretch, for the sleeve cuffs and neckband.
  • Non-separating zipper, see length below. It’s okay to use a longer zipper, you can cut it off to the correct length.

The fabric requirements above is an estimation for 150 cm (60”) wide fabrics, not preshrunk. I recommend you to add 20 cm (8”) extra if you’re purchasing new fabric for this project, and account for shrinkage.

The ribbing fabric is for sleeve cuffs, neckband and waistband, although the waistband can also be sewn in any other knit fabric.


  • Fusible interfacing for the collar and zipper. I recommend Vlieseline H200, which is soft and provides light stability. You will need about 20 cm.
  • If you want to finish the lower edge with a drawstring: one double cord lock and elastic cord, 2-3 mm thick and approx. length: the sweatshirt’s waist width + 8 cm. Also, two eyelets, 5 mm wide, and tools to attach them (for example Prym pliers).
  • Optional: bias tape (approx. 40 cm) to sew a neat finish on the zipper’s back.
  • Useful tools: Aqua glue marker, tape measure, fabric scissors, pins/clips, iron, sewing machine with coordinating thread and suitable needle for your fabric (a stretch needle is recommended for knit fabrics, and universal needle for woven fabrics).

Choose a size based on your largest body measurement, bust or waist. Compare with the finished measurements to get an idea of how Ebba is designed to fit. Ebba is an oversize sweatshirt with dolman style sleeves.

You can use fabrics with or without stretch. The more your fabric stretches, the larger the sweatshirt will be. If you’re sewing Ebba in a non-stretch fabric you don’t have to size up, but you can if you want to. Note: only the version with a collar and zipper can be sewn in non-stretch fabrics.

With the included Sewing Instructions you receive help from start to finish. It’s a solid and detailed description of each step in the making of this garment. It includes clear pictures, explanatory text and tips that will give the garment a professional look.

If you are new to some of the sewing techniques this is an excellent opportunity for you to develop your sewing skills. Consider our patterns your sewing school.

The tutorial also includes a size chart and a fabric requirements chart. Measurements are provided in both the metric and imperial system.

Sytt Ebba i WCT tyg

Har sytt Ebba i WCT tyg , beskrivningen fungerade bra, sydde storlek 48 la till lite runt stussen , jag tycker att den blev lite kort jag är 167 cm lång. Nästa gång ska jag lägga till 10-15 cm.
För oss som är lite större nedtill blir det snyggare med en längre tröja
