Bimaa sweater


The first thing I sewed up from the Sew Fab pattern pack was the Bimaa sweater,ย  from LouBee Clothing.

Can I just say how in love I am with this pattern? Shout it from the rooftops, gaga in love! It was a perfect fit (I sewed up a size 4T), easy to sew up (seriously, under an hour), and SO freaking adorable. Sadie looks ready for a magazine shoot, eh? My kindergartner is way more stylish than I am. I’ll just admit that now and get it out of the way.

She loved the cowl-but also wants one with the hood variation. haha you give them an inch….

I used some fantastic grey and pink tribal knit from Girl Charlee, which it doesn’t look like they have in stock anymore. ๐Ÿ™ sad face.

I barely eeked this out of 1 yard of fabric…ended up shortening the sleeves a few inches to make it work with the fabric I had. I prefer a 3/4 length sleeve anyways ๐Ÿ™‚

Peek a Boo!


  1. Oh my heck! This is adorable! I love the cowl neck and the fabric you chose. Good job!

  2. Oh my WORD! Sadie is adorable in her Bimaa! ๐Ÿ˜€ So happy to hear you love the pattern! Looks GREAT!!!

  4. I adore everything you make! This is another fantastic job– I so hope I eventually am able to sew as well as you do!

  5. ARGH! she is such a cutie, love the fabric choice too. our gals are gonna be bimaa twins – i’m planning to make the cowl version for my stop on the tour too! yay! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Gasp! That sweater is just about the cutest thing ever!

  7. I cant wait to purchase this bundle!!!! You seriously cant beat that price. The Bimaa is going to be one of the first I sew up for Madison who is the same petite size as Sadie. Oh Girl Charlee, how I love your knits; and craftinessisnotopitional of course ๐Ÿ™‚ Great job Jess!

  8. Love this!!! Super cute. I can’t wait to sew one (or four) up!

  9. You wouldn’t think to have that style shirt on a young girl but it is very cute and fashionable! LOVE it!

  10. Is that the one you were talking about on Saturday? Its sooooo cute! I want one for me! Sadie is one if the best dressed kinders. Adorable.

  11. that’s adorable!! love that fabric. this is such a cute pattern!

  12. Oooh, Sadie’s looks so soft and comfy. This is one of my favorite patterns so far too. Seriously SO EASY! And fast. And I love the 3/4 length sleeves on this one.

  13. Love this! Do you need an overlocker/serger to sew it up? Or can you do it all on a sewing machine?

    • Nope-I did use mine but just to finish the seams off, which isn’t necessary. I sewed it all together on my regular machine ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Yes, the world needs more 3/4 sleeves. And bimaas. And Sadie ๐Ÿ™‚
