I've had this hoodie cut out since KCWC last October, but for whatever reason never got around to finish sewing up till last weekend. And thank goodness I did, it reminded me why I love this pattern (previously seen here and here!). It's cute and quick and a great way to up-cycle t-shirts. It's Jessica of Running with Scissors Hipster Hoodie Pattern, made using stash green knit (also seen in both previous versions!) and a XL women's long sleeve t-shirt.
I wasn't sure about the colour of the stripped shirt at first, but I love it made up. Mr. Ohm says it makes little M look like a Brooklyn hipster with it almost neon greenness.
It's made up in the 2T size, and it fits my teeny 21 month old with some room (but not too much) I see even more of these hoodies in his future!
I'm inspired to cut out a bunch more kiddy clothes again.
But I've also been motivated by Julia Bobbin's Mad Men challenge! My plan is a bit ambitious, and not my normal style, but I've loved this dress since first seeing it on the show, and I think it just might turn out awesome.
The plan is to use this fabric
with this vintage 1963 pattern (currently in the mail)
to copy this dress!
Wish me luck.
