Zircon Sweater for Sew Long Summer

I’m saying Sew Long Summer by dusting off my fall sewing wish list and making it happen.

One of the projects on the top of my list was to make another Zircon Sweater from Paprika Patterns. The inserts on the Zircon let me have two of my favorite things; geometric shapes and high contrast colors.

Zircon

I’ve made the Zircon before, so I knew no alterations were needed. Take note that the Zircon sleeve is supposed to be bracelet length, but hits my shorty self right at the wrist were I prefer it.

Those inserts might look scarey to make correctly, but if you follow the directions and take your time to line up the stitching lines, you’ll be good to go.

  1. I’ve looked at this pattern so many times but always worried about the yoke being overwhelming on my frame! This looks so lovely and I really like the sharp contrast, but that navy is just gorgeous!

    1. Thank you Armena. I was nervous the first time making this top having utterly failed at making those kinds of inserts in a previous project, but thanks to some good advice from other sewists, I’m now able to make them well.
