This is week one of the 52 Week Sewing Challenge. The requirement as to sew someone warm or soft. Challenge Accepted!
Ellie and Mac has yet another release on the market.
Introducing The Going Home Sweater
Another one with loads of options which is why I like them. I sewed this one up in a few hours start to finish. I did a Full Bust Adjustment, which was a new challenge for me. Raglan sleeves tend to throw a wrench into things, don’t they? I followed a tutorial I found online and it worked out fairly well. I think if I make another one I will add another inch in the bust so it fits a little looser.
I choose the tunic length, but you could also make a shirt or a dress with this pattern. My sleeves are elbow length, but as always you could do short or long ones. The long sleeves have a band. You can also make a cowl neck option.
Does this fabric look familiar? I just used it! I am kind of in love with it. I now have two super cozy shirts with it! You can read about my Nora here.
You can pick this pattern up from Ellie and Mac here. There is a 20% off sale happening right now too!!
The crazy weather in Ohio has been locked inside as I have become a wimp when the temperatures drop. I even wore this one out for The Sawyer Brown concert on Saturday night. I grew up listening to them and still love them. You know them right? Maybe my video clip will help.
