Item details

Transform a sweater into warm, breathable, luxurious long underwear. Wear the finished pants as a warm underlayer or show them off as leggings. I've made a pair from an ultra soft cashmere sweater and they keep me warm all winter long!

This 9-step sewing project can be completed with either a sewing machine or a serger. Suitable for a beginner sewer. Completed longjohns have elastic waistband and cuffed ankles.

Pattern is a pdf file with coloured photos accompanying each step. Pattern will be sent to you directly upon purchase of this listing.

Please note that these longjohns are made completely from an upcycled sweater. The instructions will show you how to reconstruct the sweater into pants, tailored to your size and fitted with an elastic waistband. Initial seams from the armhole of the sweater will sit just above the knee of the finished pants. Despite an unconventional pattern, the finished pants are remarkably comfortable and an economic way to indulge in warm wonderful wool.

FAQs

I am happy to fill special orders and custom requests. Because items are constructed from recycled materials, colour, weight, structure and fiber may vary and/or be limited in supply. Due to the nature of my source materials, I am unable to fulfill precise colour requests. I have reclaimed wool in dozens of shades and colours and cannot photograph each one nor provide a list of what I have in stock because it is constantly changing. Thank you for respecting my creative license and for exercising flexibility when placing a custom order.

Please wash your woolens only when necessary in order to get the most out of them. Air drying is the preferred cleaning method because the fibers in wool react with oxygen to neutralize any sweat or other residue. If soiled, a mild detergent is recommended. Medium and heavy weight woolens can better handle a washing machine (be sure to use cold water) but hand washing is recommended for fine wools (such as merino) and cashmere. Wool should never be put in the dryer. Line drying is best.

If you are purchasing an item as a gift, please indicate so when ordering.

Please use the coupon code, LOCAL for free pick-up instead of shipping charges. If you wish to visit the studio in person, contact Sew Oiseau to arrange a time.

Buyers are responsible for verifying the measurements in the custom sizing chart included in the listing. If you are ever unsure, please include your chest, waist, hip and height measurements as well as desired inseam (crotch to leg cuff), rise (top of waistband to crotch), or sleeve length if applicable. Please remember that children's sizes are based on the suggested measurements attributed to each age not the current age of your child (ie if your child is 2 but wears 3T clothing, order the 3T size).

If you wish to have an item sent faster or more securely, please convo prior to purchasing. For reference, expedited shipping for international orders, which s includes tracking, can cut shipping time in half but cost double the regular price. Express posts - with guaranteed arrival in 2-3 days - costs a minimum of $30.

All items are made from reclaimed textiles. Sew Oiseau cannot ultimately guarantee the integrity of the recycled materials used. However the utmost care is taken prior to reconstruction to ensure that the wool is of the highest quality. Stains are removed and strong scents are naturally eliminated using a vinegar bath.

Great pattern! Well less of a patten than a strategy, but still ingenious.
