Nina Lee Southbank Sweater & Sweater Dress Pattern

The Nina Lee Southbank Sweater & Sweater Dress Pattern creates cosy yet stylish sweaters and sweater dresses.  These comfortable designs are sure to become a winter wardrobe workhorse. With a slightly oversized fit, funnel neck and drop-shoulders, Southbank flatters most figures.  Additionally, the garments are unbelievably quick and easy to sew!

Version 1 – a sweater dress featuring a sweatshirt-inspired hem band and side-seam pockets.  This dressing up or down very easily.

Version 2 – a hip-length top to wear over trousers or pencil skirts when made in a ponte or similar.  Alternatively, it tucks neatly into high-waisted garments if made in a lighter-weight fabric. 

Version 3 –  a cropped sweater finishing at the natural waist.

All three variations feature slouchy, slightly over-long sleeves with cuffs.  The Nina Lee Southbank Sweater & Sweater Dress Pattern comes with detailed illustrated instructions.  Additionally, the pattern contains a page of tips for sewing with knits for beginners.

Skill level: beginner


All three options work well in medium-weight knits with up to 20% stretch. We suggest fabrics such as Ponte Roma, boiled wool or sweatshirt fabric. Version 2 also works beautifully in lighter-weight jerseys which give a softer, drapier look.


0.5m of clear elastic or stay tape, 1 cm wide
Ballpoint or jersey needle

For Versions 2 and 3: 2.5mm twin needle (optional)


Hello, I’m Nina!

Nina Lee is my independent pattern label celebrating the mighty power of making! I’m based in London and create sewing patterns inspired by the incredible heritage and diversity of this brilliant place. Our patterns are named after places in the city, from fashion-forward Carnaby Street to the historic treasure trove that is Bloomsbury, and on our printed pattern envelopes you’ll find original illustrations capturing the atmosphere of each neighbourhood.

We aim to be part of the movement away from disposable, ‘fast’ fashion, towards a more sustainable and rewarding form of dressing – but one that never forgets to be fun. Our designs are intended to fit into your me-made wardrobe year-round, and to work as canvases for your own creativity.

All of our patterns come in UK sizes 6–20, with in-depth, fully illustrated instructions to guide you through. They are drafted for an average height of 5’5″ and a B cup.
