Shades of Grey

Hey, all!! This here (comfy, like lying in the clouds of the Gods!) sweatshirt has been done for a while. But, there was a bit of a shake up with my Britex guest blogging gig.

But more on that, later. Let’s talk about the sweatshirt. Yes?

With winter fully set in here in Brooklyn, I was immediately drawn to the “double” in the description of this double-faced rayon knit. It implied double warmth and double softness so it was, therefore, double good. With the fabric selected I thought…what to make? This was the project I dragged out my copy Built By Wendy Home Stretch for. I used a slightly altered version of the Flashdance mods. But, looking back, I might have liked that super off the shoulder look…good thing there is no shortage of fabric in my home.

SAM_0133 With my three pattern pieces ready to go, I drafted some super simple cuffs and a hem band (or, you know, I just cut the hem band) and I was off to the races. Or, to the sewing machine. The project was done so super quickly! Maybe an hour? Paired with leggings, it was my wardrobe for the next two days :D

SAM_0126 What more can I say? That I’d like to sleep in sheets made from this fabric? That I could EASILY make a dress, leggings and a slouchy sweater and be all set for my PJ days. For there are several days a month where I need to wear as close to jammies as I can get. Tomorrow is one of them.

SAM_0118Go get some grey and make a sweatshirt, or two!!

As for me, I hope to get into my new patterns, this week. And try my hand at some baby knits for the hubby’s niece. Hope that knitting curse was broken with the completion of Frida’s heart!
