    My favorite type of outfit is one that is both comfortable and cute at the same time, and the Melissa absolutely fulfills those requirements. This sweatshirt is so comfortable! There are tons of options, and I especially love the elastic at the cuff and hem. My favorite part is the pieced and lined hood. You will love this pattern!

    Hands down my favorite comfort Sweatshirt pattern. The elastic waistband is such an added bonus. I love all the options. As with all DIBY patterns the fit instructions are so well done. You won’t be sorry having this in your wardrobe.

    I ordered this pattern and can’t wait to get started. I have a question, the difference in my pattern size and finished size is huge, i.e. pattern size for waist measurement is 16, finished size for waist measurement is 00. Do I still cut out a 16? Thanks

    As a retired pattern maker I can be hard to please, but I find all the DIBY patterns so well drafted that I own most of them. This hoodie is one of my favorites.
