Things have been crazy busy around these parts, but I'm loving it!
I saw some sweatshirt fabric in hancock a couple of months ago and quickly grabbed it up. I've wanted some for a good while, but I could never seem to find any. I was SHOCKED to actually see that hancock had several colors.
I thought I was going to make this cute little shift dress that I saw on Net-A Porter but decided against it...for now lol.
I picked up this gorgeous sequin fabric while I was in LA last year and knew this would make the perfect sweatshirt!
My sweatshirt fabric has ZERO stretch so I made it a little bit bigger. Gives me that slouchy feel.
For those of you who sew, here is a review:
Pattern Sizing: 4-16 I cut the 16 and added a little more shaping.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, pretty much.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't even look at them. I made this pattern before. You can see it HERE
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I loved the style of this shirt.
Fabric Used: Sweatshirt fabric from hancock and sequin knit from Michael Levine
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the neckline wider, left the band off at the neckline, added shaping, and added a 2.5 inch band at the bottom.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I highly recommend this pattern. Its a wardrobe staple if you like this style shirt. I probably will make it again if I want another shirt like this.
Conclusion: Great pattern, quick sew and super cute. Grab one for your stash today.
