Ready to be cozy and stylish? The Stanton Hoodie lets you create an athleisure piece that looks smart and feels great, because it's custom-fitted to your body, with cup sizes from C - H! If you have bigger boobs, hoodies often end up uncomfortably tight or sloppy and oversized, but Cashmerette patterns are designed for curves to give you an amazing fit at the bustline AND at the rest of your body.
The Stanton features a pullover and a zip-up version, and both have a curved yoke at the shoulder with the great fit of a set-in sleeve. The roomy pockets let you leave your purse at home and run free. Get playful with color-blocking or go monochrome for a chic look. From the yoga studio, to the coffee shop, you'll be looking sharp!
This Cashmerette pattern includes:
- Cup sizes from C to H
- A sizing calculator which will tell you exactly which size to make
- A beautifully illustrated and detailed instruction booklet, to guide you no matter your sewing level
0-16 in three cup sizes (C/D, E/F, G/H); includes 33-46” bust and 35-46” hip. Find your size in seconds using our size calculator.

Installing the zipper can be confusing and I still haven’t figured it out for certain. I cannot figure out why the pattern calls for a 26” zipper when the jacket will use 22” at best. This through me for a loop. Additionally if you are still not perfect with your seam allowances, (like me) your seams will not line up. And since I flat welted all my seams I cannot take the jacket apart to re-sew them. Fortunately I have enough fabric to start over.
I think the instructions could be clearer and more detailed/pictures in the I stalling the zipper section.
This jacket has been a test of my novice abilities, however by doing so, it has taught me new skills, and a new level of patience.
Haven’t re-started the project and it’s a gift for my mother.
I have just recently made this hoodie. What a fabulous pattern. This is the first time I have made a sweatshirt that isn't too big, too baggy with the sleeves not been too full or too long. I did take the sleeves up by an inch but that was the only alteration. Thank you for the fantastic drafting. I will definitely be making this again.
The pattern produces a well made hoodie that the recipient thought was store bought! The quality of garment showed. May make a few tweaks and increase the body length. Perhaps next time I won’t sew the pocket on upside down. Sigh.
