Love the Fabric...
but don't have a clue
what to make with it?
September 20, 2019
In this issue of Imagine the Possibilities, we introduce another new sewing pattern by Sawyer Brook Distinctive Fabrics: the SBP102B – best suited for lightweight jersey knit tops!
We also share with you pattern ideas for making coats and long jackets from a number of gorgeous wool coating fabrics, and ideas for mixing double-knit Ponte fabrics to trim and accent lighter weight jersey knit or woven fabrics to create unique looks.
New Pattern By Sawyer Brook: SBP102B
Inspired by the colorful viscose jersey knit fabrics, this top with sleeves is very easy, very simple, loose-fitting, and very flattering to any shape. It may be cut on the fabric bias or its vertical grain. It falls on the sides at the hip line with two contour options:
- An off-center V-shaped contour that drops to about 6″ to 8″ below the hip line, and
- A centered U-Shaped contour that drops to about 4″ to 6″ below the hip line.
Roses – Aubergine Top Using the V-Shaped version of SBP102B
The pattern was placed on the fabric bias to enable the resulting effect of the roses placement for the front and the back of this top. The sleeves were placed along the cross grain. Use any of the three colors of the Roses jersey knit fabrics or the Watercolors jersey knit fabric.
Cecelia – Red Top Using the U-Shaped version of SBP102B
The pattern was placed along the vertical grain of the fabric. Use any of the three colors of the Cecelia jersey knit fabrics or the Taliah jersey knit fabric to make this top!

Fabric Options For The SBP102B Pattern
Accent & Trimming Options
Use PonteLight – Black with the CoverUp fabric; Pontey – Burgundy, PonteLight – Navy, PonteLight – Scarlet, or UltraSuede – Camel with the Naughty Kitty fabric; Pontey – Burgundy or UltraSuede – Camel with the Merlot Garden; and PonteLight – Navy with the Roses-R-Blue or the Edvary fabrics.
Ponte Knit Fabrics
Double-knit Ponte fabrics work wonderfully for many applications. One idea is to use them in place of rib-knit to finish and accent any jersey knit top or dress!
Pair any of textured solids, striped, or prints jersey knit fabrics with Ponte double-knit fabric or ribbed-knit fabrics, or mix any two contrasting colors of Ponte double-knit fabrics to create this beautiful top using Simplicity S8951 pattern!
