Cool Spring in Oregon and Sewing

There are still some very chilly days in May Oregon and I find myself grabbing this hoody I made a few months ago. I thought I'd post a finished picture of it. Pearly and I have been pouring over pattern catalogs online trying to pick out just the right patterns.

Here is KWIK SEW 3094 - an older pattern, but Kwik Sew tends to stick with more classical styles instead of following the very trendy looks. Kwik Sew's patterns are on regular paper, not tissue, which makes it ideal for copying on to tracing material (which is great for me since I end up redrafting patterns by adding 7 inches to pants length and 3+ inches to arm length). Another great thing about Kwik Sew patterns is that it has all sizes on the pattern from XS to XL.

I picked up this funky embroidered polar fleece at JoAnn's on the clearance section (half off clearance and it was about $2 p/yard, so this is one inexpensive "muslin"). My husband says it suits me. It's a bit funky and very casual, but sometimes it's the first thing I grab if it's chilly out. It's very comfortable and check out those long sleeves!

With the hoody on - pardon me, the camera caught me pulling a piece of stray piece of hair off - lol.
