I missed the boat last year on Sew House Seven’s popular Toaster Sweater. I loved it, but it just never made it on my to-do-list. When I saw the new Vogue V9330, which features a few extra details, I knew I had to have it.

With a wide standup collar and roomy fit, Vogue V9330 is the perfect cozy make for winter sewing. The boxy fit works great with skinny jeans or leggings.
I love a great Vogue Pattern, they incorporate classic design lines with stylish, modern twists. It needed to be on my Fall shopping list for New York City Fabric Shopping. You can view my Fabric Haul Video HERE. I actually bought 3 fabrics to make it with. I still have a heather brown wool jersey from Mood on the cutting table.
Knowing this is an oversized look, I cut the pattern down a little from my usual size so I wouldn’t feel swamped by the sweater. I used a yummy off-white Ponte Roma like this one from Minerva. OMG, I love this sweater. It is cozy, comfy and stylish.
I did find that the first one I made (the white one) was still a little large for my frame. I cut everything down a ½ size from my original and shortened the sleeves and body 1”. The second version is more in proportion to my frame. This fuchsia fabric is a wool jersey from Mood. It has a distinct knit line, so I was careful to have all the pieces going in the same direction. I bought 2 yards, washed it – so it shrank a little and I had just enough fabric to cut out the sweater.
I love the darts on the sleeves making them come in about 2 ½ inches at the wrist. Also, the side panel inserts are really fun and can lead to some interesting color blocking. It works up like a dream. The pieces fit together perfectly, there are plenty of seams to make fit adjustments and it goes up in a jiffy. The sewing time on both these sweaters was under 2 hours each.

I see loads of these in my future. I’m thinking they will make great Christmas gifts because they are cozy, stylish and have some forgiveness in the way they fit.
