So for this months challenge we’re working with trends #sewhotrightnow. But I am not very good at spotting trends until they’re on the way out the back door. Hence going with a more enduring trend: the Linden Sweatshirt from Grainline Studio. The fabric is 100% organic and from Bizzy and Boo on etsy. It feels gorgeous and didn’t noticeably shrink in the pre sewing wash.
Anyway the Linden Sweatshirt is my new favorite thing in the whole world. I made my first one yesterday (it’s that quick to sew). And then had enough time in the evening to whip up this one. The bright yellow background and cute print cheers me up no end. Spring is here whatever the weatherman says!
I didn’t change anything on the pattern and sewed it just as I did yesterday. The only hiccup was that the contrast ribbing stretched a bit more than desirable or I stretched it with the twin needle – so the neck is bigger than ideal. It still looks fine, and lies nicely, its just a bit bigger. Oh well, lesson learned, neck time when using more stretching ribbing I’ll make the neckband a bit smaller.
