Stap 1: Sluit de schoudernaden

  • Leg het voorpand op het rugpand met de juiste kanten tegen elkaar.
  • Leg de schoudernaad gelijk, en stik/lock de naad op de standaard naadwaarde.
  • Herhaal voor de tweede schoudernaad.

Stap 2: Zet de mouwen in

  • Leg je aan elkaar bevestigde voor- en achterpand neer met de goede kant naar boven.
  • Leg een mouw bovenop met de goede kant naar beneden
  • Leg de bovenkant van de mouwkop gelijk met de schoudernaad. De mouw ligt over het voor-en achterpand heen, tot aan de andere schoudernaad
  • Speld de mouw op z’n plaats langs het hele armsgat. Er zit een beetje extra stof in de mouwkop, wat wil zeggen dat de mouwkop een beetje groter is dan het armsgat. Verdeel dit verschil over het bovenste deel van de mouwkop terwijl je speldt.
  • Sew/serge your pinned sleeve in place
  • Repeat for the other sleeve

Step 3: Finish the neck binding

  • Measure the length of the neck opening
  • Cut a piece of ribbing that is this length and 6cm/2.5inch wide
  • Fold the ribbing double with the good side outward, and pin it to your neckopening starting from the back
  • The cut off side of your ribbing should align with the edge of your neck opening, while the ribbing extends over your sweatshirt
  • Pin the ribbing in place around the neck opening, starting at the back and stretching it gently as you do so
  • First, join the ribbing at center back, with good sides together. As you’ve been stretching the ribbing as you were pinning it, it will be too long. Simply cut that away
  • Then, sew the ribbing to the neck opening

Step 4: Close the side seams and sleeves

  • Fold Sven double at the shoulder seams with good sides together
  • Align the side seams and sleeves and pin them together
  • Now, sew the side seam and continue sewing to close the arms all the way to the cuff
  • Repeat on the other side

Step 5: Attach the cuffs

  • Measure the width of the sleeve at the cuff
  • Cut a piece of ribbing that is (twice this length - 2cm/1inch) and 7cm/3inch wide
  • Fold the ribbing double along the longest side, and sew together the edge so you have a continous ring
  • Turn your Sven inside-out
  • Fold the ribbing ring with the good side outwards, and slip the folded side into your inside/out Sven sleeve
  • Align the cut off side of the ribbing with the edge of the sleeve and pin it in place. The ribbing is a bit shorter, so stretch it a bit while pinning to work this into the sleeve.
  • Now, sew/serge the ribbing to the sleeve
  • Repeat for the other cuff

Step 6: Attach the hem

  • Do for the hem as your did for the cuffs
  • Measure the width of Sven at the hem
  • Cut a piece of ribbing that 1.9 times this length and 7cm/3inch wide
  • You may need to attach different pieces if your ribbing fabric isn’t wide enough
  • Fold the ribbing double along the longest side, and sew together the edge so you have a continous ring
  • Turn your Sven inside-out
  • Fold the ribbing ring with the good side outwards, and slip the folded side into your inside/out Sven body
  • Align the cut off side of the ribbing with the edge of the body and pin it in place. The ribbing is a bit shorter, so stretch it a bit while pinning to work this into the body.
  • Now, sew/serge the ribbing to the body
