One of the things that I love about the Linden is that it comes together quite quickly. When I feel like I want to sew something but don’t have a lot of time, the Linden does the trick. I get the satisfaction of sewing something from start to finish and I also get to add another sweatshirt to my collection. Win. Win.
Now that I know the fit is perfect, as I’m sewing the Linden together I like to twin needle stitch each seam. It takes a little extra time, but I love the way this detail looks.
Don’t forget! If you’re making self ribbing from the Liberty Fleece, you want to cut it on the bias.
Has anyone made any modifications to this pattern? I think I’m ready to experiment…

Insert zippers in the side seams!!
What type of thread do you use on your fleece and knits? Oh and what number of twin needle do you use here? I love your blog and your studio it almost makes me give up on San Frnacisco and go back to Toronto!!
Seems like time and again you seem to make the best version of a pattern that I come across. Sometimes I’ll be a bit lukewarm on a pattern and then see your version and it totally changes my mind! And here’s another example. This is just lovely, your fabric choice is spot on.
Lovely! Fits you very well, a true staple.

Love your Lindens. OK, I need to get the pattern! Did you use a serger on this??
[…] on the skirt. My initial plan was to make a second version in a classic grey marl, but when I saw this Linden by Karyn of The Workroom in Liberty Manning fleece I was desperate to make one in the same […]
I love this linden sweatshirt so much! I just made one out of some sweatshirt fabric that I had in my stash. My problem is, it’s not stretchy at all; it fits, but it doesn’t move and stretch with me very much.
I had to cut my neckline, hem, and cuffs on the bias for them to fit.
I would love to buy some Libery linford fleece from you- my question is, does it have any stretch at all?
When I read here that for the linford you suggest cutting the neckline etc on the bias it makes me wonder how much stretch it has.
I know this is an old post; I hope you’ll see this question because I see myself making lots of linford fleece lindens if the fabric does have stretch!
Thank you so much, love your blog and your entire online presence is so well cultivated and maintained I only wish I lived in Toronto to visit your shop!
Hi Katherine! You’re right the sweatshirt fleece often isn’t really that stretchy at all, especially compared to regular jersey. That’s why I definitely recommend cutting the band pieces, especially the neck bank on the bias so that you have a bit more ease to work with when trying to sew it on. Did you find that the size you made worked for you or did it feel tight with the sweatshirt fabric?
It fits but I can’t roll up the sleeves which is something I tend to want to do with a long sleeved shirt. The neckband and cuffs had to be cut in the bias and lengthened, the stretch was so non-existent.
Is there even a little bit of stretch in the Liberty fleece?
thanks for your response!
