How to turn Jocko into a crop pullover

list In Alterations & Pattern hackings On

The crop Jocko pullover hack was a brilliant idea that I got from two of my testers. This is a great hack for anyone, but is especially great if your fabric is on the lighter side or if you want to pair it with highwaisted jeans. Ready to sew's patterns are drafted for an average hight of 165cm so if you differ from that, you might need to adjust the numbers from this tutorial. Lengthening and shortening your pattern pieces is pretty straighforward, find the lengthen / shorten lines and apply your length changes between them. In the case of the Jocko pullover I’ve included two lengthen/shorten lines, but you will add too more lines, this way you can adjust and keep good  proportions.

Add too more "shorten-lengthen" lines (the green lines on the drawing above).

- The first green line must be about 8,5cm below the first black line.

- The second green line must be in between the second black line and the bottom of the pullover.

- Cut your pattern using the four shorten-lenghten lines.

- Overlap the five pieces following the amonts indicated on the drawing above. Tape the pieces together.

- Trace your piece off onto the paper and re-blend any gagged edges along the side seam. The bottom front of your Jocko pullover should hit in between the small and big hips.

That's it for today! As with all pattern adjustments the only way to tell if it has actually worked is to run up a test muslin from your new pattern pieces.
