Have you already entered into autumn with a weatherproof outfit? If you're still looking for the perfect all-rounder, then you've come to the right place. We have a windbreaker for you, with all design options for you to decide. You always cut a fine figure with this pullover anorak in the transition period and cleverly stow away small things in the pockets. With the material selection, creativity knows no bounds – from denim to oilskin or nylon fabrics, nothing is impossible. And should the sun happen to come out, you can stow the whole jacket in the breast pocket using a clever folding technique – so you'll always have it handy when the weather gets nasty again.
Tipp: Reflective elements such as piping, patches or fluorescent sewing thread are always an eye-catcher in the darker months of the year. Labels, color blocking and a great hoodie cord also go great with the pattern. And before you know it, the anorak will be your new favorite piece.
Note: We classify the project in the category of experts. Depending on which shell fabric you choose, the difficulty level will vary, of course. Nylon, for example, is a little trickier to work with than, say, denim. No matter which variant you choose in the end, the pattern is designed for non-stretch fabrics.
Important: Our sizes cannot be compared with ready-to-wear sizes. It is very important that you take your measurements before you start.
How to take measurements:
It is best to take your measurements directly on your underwear. Wear a bra that fits. The waist band should not be too tight around the waist (it must still be possible to adjust it).

Stitch along the edge of the pocket opening, stitch along the horizontal lines at the top and bottom at a 45° angle up to the edge of the seam allowance. Cut the seam allowances of the front piece and pocket bag at an angle in the corners. Turn pocket bag inside out, iron edges. Stitch the edge of the pocket opening 5 mm wide with yarn in a contrasting color, stitch across the top and bottom towards the seam allowance. Secure seam ends.
Stitch sleeves to armholes. Neaten the seam allowances together and iron into the sleeves. Stitch the side seams and sleeve seams, only stitching up to the cross stitch at the hem to pull in the elastic band (on the front and back only on one side seam). Neaten the seam allowances and iron them apart.
For the sleeves, cut 2 pieces each of 24 (25.5) 27 (28.5) 29 (29.5) cm off the elastic band. Shorten the remaining rubber band to 100 (108) 116 (124) 132 (140) cm. Use a safety pin to thread the rubber band into the tunnels. Stitch the ends together or sew them together by hand. Sew up seam openings by hand.
