Pretty Sweatshirt.

Pretty Sweatshirt.

This, people, is my first real hand sewn article of clothing. Well, hand sewn by me. Other than scarves and bags and things.

Frankly, I found clothing patterns to be this oppressive foreign language. It sounds like German in my head. No flexibility, cut along the lines, don’t screw up or it will all look terrible… but I gave it a try.

I give most of my credit to Craftsy.com. Loaded with online classes from food to knitting to anything else, including sewing classes. This pattern is from the class “Sewing with Knits” lead by the author of books I’ve eyed for years, “Sew Liberating”. TONS of information, a great place to start, and hey, I got something unique. And we all know, that’s what matters in the end, right?
