Alex Sweatshirt pattern tester roundup

Alex Sweatshirt pattern tester roundup

Testing a pattern before the release is very important to make sure that everything works as it's supposed to, and that there are no errors. For the Alex Sweatshirt pattern, as usual, I had the help of a group of ladies who made beautiful sweatshirts and hoodies for their girls and boys. Here are their photos and links.

For more information about the Alex Sweatshirt pattern see this blog post. And you can buy the pattern here.


Aimee - Puzzle Patterns:

"The Alex Sweatshirt is such a quick and easy sew with a beautiful fit and finish. I can't wait to make many, many more!"


Ana Sofia - @sisforsewing:

"Shopping with (pre)teens can be such a nightmare! Plus, I really wanted to keep sewing for her - this pattern addressed all her style requests (loose fit, lots of options) and it was truly a joy to sew. Great instructions are always an added bonus, of course! Top marks once again. Thanks!"


Deborah - @caseninna:

"Super sweater... Fit is perfect... Daughter loves the crop length hoodie color blocked version..."



"An essential basic! A very well cut model with many options. With detailed explanations and tips for beautiful interior finishes."


Fenna - Fabulous Home Sewn:

"I love the options on this sweatshirt! So many options in one pattern, and the fit is great. Plus, it's for both boys and girls so I can get so much use out of it--even for my older kids."


Magda - House of Estrela:

"Yet another comfy sweatshirt for the busy and active kids. Easy to sew and with attention to details just like we love."


Natalie - Natalie Sewing 4u:

"This Alex sweatshirt sewed up like a dream with the nice finishing touches that give it a very professional look. The pattern is an easy-intermediate level and comes together seamlessly :) So many artistic options available with the color-blocking stripes. This is really an essential in a child's wardrobe!"


Pamela Leavers:

"I went into this pattern very nervous and as I cut the fabric, I thought this would be the only time I would ever sew it up. However, this has been one of the easiest patterns I have ever sewn. The instructions were super helpful.

I made the solid sweatshirt and you can get this pattern cut out and sewn in a day! I made 2 as I have 2 boys and they both love them. They are wearing them as I type this!

The designer is so open and helpful. It really makes the difference when sewing a pattern. Her designs are so stylish and easy to sew. Thank you."


Rita - @ritatalmeida:


Feyza - @feymcfadyen:

"This pattern is surprisingly quick to sew. I love all the options. And cannot wait to sew another one. The fitting is roomy so perfect for layering. I love the elastic waist option since it gives a very unique style on this sweater. The instructions are very clear and like all Susana's patterns, the fitting is really really good. Cannot wait to see more of Susana's designs!"



"I really love your pattern. The design is very comfortable for my kids. My daughter liked it so much that she's asked me to make another one." 


Anja- @a_siwsiw_thing:

"I love a good unisex pattern and this one gets a double plus for all the options that are being offered! Making it possible to meet everyone's needs/desires!"


Collin Horn:

"Little man loves it. I followed the directions exactly and it turned out brilliant!"
