Sheridan Sweater Review

Sheridan Sweater Review by Skirt Fixation

Probably every post about the Sheridan Sweater by Hey June Patterns has the words “did it again” in it somewhere! It’s just that this pattern is so good and so fresh, that the sentiment is understandable.

The Sheridan Sweater pattern is a quick and easy pattern. We sewed up 2 of them the day the pattern was released, and almost entirely on the serger. This pattern does not require a serger, that’s just a point of reference for experienced sewists.

There are two neckline options, 3 sleeve options, and 3 length/hemline options for the Sheridan sweater. The floral sweater I’m wearing is the crew neckline, elasticated sleeves and full banded length. I added 2 inches to the arms, 2 inches to the length and 1 inch to the width of the shoulders for my tall height adjustments. The fabric I used was french terry from my stash.

This sweater is intended to hit right at the hip, which took a bit of getting used to for me. It’s a shorter length than most sweater and hoodie patterns I’ve made, but after wearing it for a day, I rather like it! The banded hem is snug on my hips and stays there, allowing the bodice to blouse out over my stomach area. The same area that has borne nine children, so I’m really in love with this kind cut!

The elasticated sleeves also took a little getting used to. Although I added 2″ to their length, I still felt like they were too short because anything I did caused them to ride up over my wrist bone. But after wearing it for a day, I think this also is intended, and I just needed to get used to the feeling of it!

The black sweater Aria is wearing is the crew neckline, cuffed sleeves, and banded full length. For her tall adjustments, we added 3 inches to the sleeves, 3 inches to the length and 1 inch to the shoulder width. Yes, that means she’s taller than me now. {Wild cheering!!!} It’s really neat to see her confidence with her 6′ 1/2″ height! The fabric for her Sheridan Sweater is a black sweater knit, also from our stash.

She L.O.V.E.S. this Sheridan Sweater and is very good at choosing pattern options and fabrics that she will be very happy with and will complement the other garments in her wardrobe. Last year she took time to go through the free Wardrobe Architect series on the Colette Blog, and has a very intentional and beautiful wardrobe as a result.

The Sheridan Sweater pattern can be sewn in 11 sizes from 2 – 22. The illustrations are very complete and easy to follow. The other neckline option is a bateau neck, which we really need to try too.

We were given the Sheridan Sweater pattern, but the review is our honest opinion. Affiliate links are used in this post which means we might make a few pennies (at no extra cost to you) if you click on our links. Thanks for supporting our small sewing business!
