Today we finish our hoodie! VICTORY!
I can’t get enough of this hoodie. The purple-hued hoodie pictured in some of the photos below, is the fourth I’ve made in a very short time. And I have another on the table!
Time to get stitching! #LikeABoss
Weather here this time of year is gorgeous. That said, it’s hard to find a Pacific Northwest season that isn’t hoodie-friendly. Even in the hottest of our August days, a lightweight hoodie is perfect for those late summer nights. I am adoring my Nature’s Fabrics bamboo french terry (NAYY – just love their stuff!). It is the perfect weight – midweight, heavier than a heavy t-shirt but not hoodie weight. I am reminded that delicious bespoke benefits from high-quality fabrics!
So – time to get stitching!
What you can expect: a detailed sew-along suitable for beginners or advanced stitchers. For those new (or new-ish) to sewing with knit fabrics, this is an especially-appropriate project. We’re working with midweight knits with good recovery. They can be sewn on a lock-stitch machine (read: a “regular sewing machine”) – no serger required!
And – great news! – Nature’s Fabrics have once again graced us with their partnership. They are offering a 10% off coupon code to participants in the sew-along. I will warn you though; their fabrics are addicting. I highly recommend the bamboo stretch fleece, or the bamboo stretch terry (the latter is shown in the supply list below). All you need to do to get your coupon code is to email me and sign up for the sew-along!
