Josephine is a quick sew that produces an effortlessly beautiful result. I’ve made several and had orders for several more; the style is very popular (and for good reason!).

I’ll be honest, I saw the photos and loved the sweater- however when I sewed it up, I was underwhelmed. I looked at it carefully, and after considering the structure of my sweater knit decided to slim the sides down a bit to better reflect the look the pattern was aiming for. I stared at it a a couple times in my closet before I was having what I call a “fat” day- you know those days when for some reason nothing seems to fit right and you just don’t feel comfortable in your clothes? Well I used a basic tee shirt over jeans and threw on the josephine jumper on top. It was perfect- visual interest, covers my problem areas, shockingly comfortable and I felt rather pretty overall. I didn’t have to adjust throughout the day, and was able to comfortably lounge. I plan to try again with a better draping fabric, and long sleeve this time. When first pre-reading the instructions I was a bit confused- the videos helped a ton, so when it came to sew it up it was a breeze. At least as much of a breeze as sewing finicky fabric with a cat ever is.

LOVE the Josephine Jumper! Very quick and easy sew! The videos along with the tutorial make the twist much more easy to comprehend and get right. Very comfortable and can be dressed up or down, depending on your fabric.

This pattern is an easy sew with clear instructions for the twists needed to make the draping cowl front. It looks fab and suits all kinds of body shapes. I made mine in a lightweight jersey, but it looks great in other heavier knit fabrics too. I’m looking forward to making some more of these as they are a quick, satisfying make, and I’ve already had lots of wear out of mine!

This pattern is a complete hit! Such an easy sew and so rewarding receiving great compliments on it! Attaching the collar at the back needs extra attention to detail, I did it wrong a few times but I have a few more of these planned up already!

I really like the style of this jumper and received numerous complements when I wore it for the first time today. I was able to do this with just the pattern instructions and did not watch the videos, they are clear and well written with helpful pictures. It also takes some experience to work with knits so they look professionally done, especially the hems.
The style is very versatile, I’m planning to make one for my pregnant daughter and I think it will also be a great nursing top and good at hiding any after baby extra weight.

Easy to follow pattern instructions with added videos for help. Nice and quick sew for beginner sewistas just make sure to read all the instructions before actually doing any of the steps
Gill Jerman –
Great pattern which was quick to sew up. I found the twist easy as the instructions and video tutorial were clear and easy to follow. I used a 4 way stretch rayon fabric. I’d like to try it in a sweater knit next.
Shelby Chubb –
A lovely, quick and easy sew! Everything came together without any fuss and the end product is cozy and stylish. I sewed up a very casual version, but I could also see how this pattern could be used for a comfortable pair of dressier pants too. Enjoyable and highly recommended!

I love twist tops!!!!!
This pattern looks more complicated than it is, as it’s actually very easy and a quick sew.
Comprehensive instruction and yes there is a video in the instruction to help with the twist if needed.
I love my finish top and have worn in to death so I see a lot of these on my sewing table in the future
Joanne Gardner –
I am a complete novice sewer and this is the first garment that I have ever made. The instructions, especially the videos, made the pattern really easy to follow. The jumper looks beautiful and stylish and I will definitely be making more as my sewing improves. However because of the jersey fabric, I think that I will make a smaller size next time. Overall, an excellent pattern for a beginner to follow especially as it looks much more complex than it really is.

I sewed the Josephine jumper and was a little worried because it sounded tricky. But, I watched the videos and followed the process and it was easy and fast. I whipped this up in a few hours. I always try to have a few firsts with every sew. This was my first time sewing with such a loose weave but I really wanted this in an “open knitted” fabric – and I love it! I’m going to make another version now that I know it’s love. Although I think next time I won’t hem it. I don’t have a cover stitch and I don’t really like the finish of the hems that my machine did.

The Josephine is my new favourite jumper! I made it up in a lovely floral knit and love the way the cowl drapes across the front. The pattern is very easy to follow, there is a link to a video in the instructions which shows you clearly how the twist on the cowl part is made, this along with step by step photo’s makes it an ideal quick and easy sew for beginners.

Easy and quick sew. The result is so gorgeous! | Projet simple et rapide. Le résultat est vraiment magnifique!
Beth Barton –
For those who prefer a less fitted silhouette, this is a great knit option. The cowl neck took me a few tries to perfect, but otherwise this is a super quick pattern to whip up. I do recommend sizing down at least one size.
Gabrielle Carisse –
I didn’t put much attention on the way I turned my twist and ended up with an ugly knot, but thank to the support of the amazing Rebecca page team, I could save it and it ended up being very easy after all.
This pattern creates an amazing piece to add to my wardrobe!!! I absolutely love it, plus it was pretty easy to sew up! Love the fact they added in YouTube descriptions to help you along the way! Can’t wait to make more!!!

This is a great quick and easy sew, the instructions are clear but the videos with the twist section were super helpful. Measurement wise, I am a XXL top and 3xl bottom. As this has lots of ease I went for a straight XXL. I also lengthened by 2” as I am 5’10 but it came out quite long (below my bottom at the back), I also Needed to take 2” off the arms which surprised me as I am taller than the pattern is measured for. It does make up into a lovely Jumper and I have worn it loads already. My next one I will make in XL to see how that works.

LOVE this pattern. SO COMFY! Also is breastfeeding friendly and I’ll be making a few for some friends that are new moms ❤️

The Josephine Jumper is a great sweater pattern that’s a little trickier than you’d initially expect. The front/cowl combo looks great, but I’d definitely recommend watching the video in the instructions a couple of times to make sure you get it right.

Such a pretty, unique top, and the instructions are very clear. Love it!
