About the Southbank

The Southbank Sweater and Sweater Dress is a cosy yet stylish knit pattern designed to become a winter wardrobe workhorse. With a slightly oversized fit, funnel neck and drop-shoulders, Southbank is on-trend, comfortable and flattering. Oh, and it’s unbelievably quick and easy to sew.

Version 1 is a sweater dress with a sweatshirt-inspired hem band and side-seam pockets, easy to dress up or down.
Version 2 is a hip-length top suitable for wearing over trousers or pencil skirts when made in a ponte or similar, or ideal for tucking into high-waisted garments if made in a lighter-weight fabric.
Version 3 is a cropped sweater designed to finish at the natural waist. All three variations feature slouchy, slightly over-long sleeves with cuffs.

The pattern comes with detailed illustrated instructions and a page of tips for sewing with knits for beginners.

 

The Fabric

All three Southbank options work well in medium-weight knits with up to 20% stretch, such as ponte roma, boiled wool, sweatshirt fabric. Version 2 also works beautifully in lighter-weight jerseys which give a softer, drapier look.

 

The Notions

  • 0.5m of clear elastic or stay tape, 1 cm wide
  • ballpoint or jersey needle
  • For Versions 2 and 3: 2.5mm twin needle (optional)

 

Sizing

The size range for this pattern is UK sizes 6–20. 

The Nina Lee patterns available from stockists are drafted for UK sizes 6–20.  Nina is in the process of updating designs to have a second size range from UK 16–28.  You will need to order directly from Nina Lee if you would like the 16–28 range, but we hope these will be available for the shop in the future.
