Sweatshirty

Amazingly, I got some sewing done over the weekend. Yeah, it’s a sweatshirt, but it’s winter, and I am always cold. I always have to have on several layers, and when I go outdoors, I need the technical gear, like Goretex or down. I have to face the elements, people, and I need equipment! So anyway, a while back I got this sweatshirt pattern from Rick Rack, a great little fabric store in Japan that seems to specialize in awesome knits. I got some fleece-lined high-tech sweatshirty fabric from Rose City Textiles, and there you have it. This came together very easily in an afternoon. It’s super comfy and WARM, and I really love it. Peter thinks it looks an article of clothing from a spaceship (I think what he is trying to say is it looks like a Star Trek uniform).

    That looks super and what’s wrong with a Star Trek uniform anyway? It’s fashion forward.

    If all sweatshirts looked like that, then I would like wearing them. My sweatshirts are worn because they are warm, but they always make me feel dowdy.

  8. Wow that’s cool! Or warm, rather. ;) Very nice. I like the button details.
