I was cleaning out a pile in my craft room and came across a pattern for an infant hooded sweatshirt. I had cut it out last year sometime. It was pretty small - 12 months - but looked pretty big. I figured it wouldn't hurt to sew it together, if it didn't fit Sydney I would give it away. I got everything done but the hood and decided I liked it just the way it was! I added some bright floral fabric around the edge (bias tape rules!). I was really going to try adding buttons, but I couldn't find any that looked right. I went with velcro instead (behind the little tabs). I think it turned out pretty cute.
The bottom rippled edge bothers me though. I even took the time to go to my sister's house to serge the edge, but it didn't help the ripple problem much. Next time maybe I will continue the bais tape along the bottom too. Are there any other fixes out there for this problem? Anyway, its done! One more thing off my pile and a new little jacket to add to Sydney's fall wardrobe. (I decided she has plenty of summer clothes and I should get started sewing some stuff for fall/winter instead.) Better keep going while I'm on a roll!
I am very excited - tonight I am going to a watercolor class with a new friend of mine! I haven't done anything like this in a long time. Hope I have something decent to show you!! Happy Tuesday!
