Lately, I've been loving knits. They are so easy and quick to sew up; I can finish a dress or shirt in usually just one or two sewing sessions. The added benefit of sewing with knits is that I am reasonably sure that both S and B will wear the finished product on at least a weekly basis.
I sewed up these Hoodie Dresses a few weeks ago and am now just getting around to blogging about them. The pattern is the Hangout Hoodie by Pee-ka-boo Pattern Shop.
Version number one was made using a JoAnn knit that I found in the red tag clearance area and at 50% off, I believe I paid about $3.00 a yard. The print is even more bright and garish in real life; I tried to tone it down with the white sleeves, hood, and kangaroo pockets. I think I mostly succeeded, right?
And just because, here is a close-up of B in her Hoodie dress.
