Hi Guys! As a busy mom, I’m all about a cute and comfy look and the Omni Tempore Hoodie is just the pattern for that. The Omni Tempore is also a real quick sew and fit perfectly into my busy schedule.
The Omni Tempore is a great pattern which can be made into different styles. You are able to make it in a long or short sleeve and you can add a cuff to the sleeve or simply hem it. The same goes for the bodice hem, you have the option of simply hemming it or adding a band to the hem. Another option is to make it into a shirt with an over lapping collar in the front or you can add a hood to it. Lastly, and most importantly, in my opinion, is that the pattern comes in sizes XS-XXXL making this a unisex pattern! Now, that’s a win in my book. The Omni Tempore also comes in children’s sizes from 12M – 14y and you can get on for your little HERE.
For my Omni Tempore I chose to make the hoodie version. I’ve really been into hoodies lately and this is the perfect top for these mild South Florida winters. The pattern calls to use a knit fabric and I just happen to have this Hot Pink Solid Tri Blend French Terry Knit Fabric I purchased from Girl Charlee two years ago. I always envisioned making some sort of athleisure wear with it and along came the Omni Tempore pattern. I thought it was a match made in heaven. I’ll be making a matching pair of joggers real soon with the remaining fabric since I purchased 5 yards. Unfortunately, it’s no longer available. I added the cuffs to the long sleeves and added the band at the hem and the front pocket. Based on my body measurements, I went with the size medium.
I thought the pattern instructions were very easy to follow and also contain clear photos illustrating every step. This pattern does not contain too many pattern pieces and comes together very quickly. I was able to make this in 1 evening. The pattern is categorized as a beginner pattern and it is. As long as you use a stretch needle while sewing with knits, which is included in the pattern instructions, then you’ll be fine. I really enjoy sewing Sofilantjes patterns.
