While it feels like we will never get any snow
(channeling my inner child!)
we have had quite a few chilly days.
So I sewed a warm sweat shirt for Miss C.
She likes them large and fluffy, with a hood
and a large kangaroo pocket
And so she got just that.
I had brought back the fabric from France last fall,
it is like a two sided fabric: soft cotton jersey
and fluffy minky .
I think that fabric was mostly designed for babies as it was mostly pastel color,
but this warm grey was perfect for my young lady.
For the pattern I combined 2 patterns from Ottobre,
old edition of the magazine, but sweat shirts are pretty classic in design.
Instead of doing any kind of binding, I turned the sleeves and the pocket inside out
to add a cool design, and fluffiness!
Once I was ready to work on it, it was a resonnable project:
one afternoon of transferring the pattern and cutting the fabric,
another afternoon of sewing.
At the end, a happy child!
I miss sewing for her,
but no more little dresses or cute shorts...
but sweat-shirts are good!
