The Lex sweatshirt is a quick, cozy project that will boost your mood while you sew it and when you wear it. It has an oversized fit, dropped shoulders, and a kangaroo pocket with a binding at the openings. Have fun with fabric for this sweatshirt! For the contrast fabric, look for clashing colors or coordinating ribbing.

This pattern pairs well with so many bottoms in the Seamwork catalog, like the Mel joggers, Witt pants, Tessa jeans, and leggings like Shelly or Tino. So when you finish making this sweatshirt, why not sew a matching set?
