To keep up with my Clothes For Mum Challenge
here is another hoodie I have nearly finished apart from lining and sewing on the hood. Again it is made from a run of the mill zip front number that you find everywhere. These always tend too be to small but they have good bones I think. Ive sliced off the side and arm seams and added in four different types of green or grey offcuts. The grey was left over from the previous hoodie and I love the mix this adds to the olive.
A nice pale green for the hood trim in a mohair knit.
A favourite green used for cuffs from an existing bottom of another jumper.
The side seams are slightly tapered towards the waist for a better fit. I had some matching green in a slightly wider rib from yet another jumper. I used it at the base for uniformity of colour. My green fetish comes from the fact that I am constantly drawn to purchasing green knitted things. I wish I could stop. These were what I already had and im steering clear of the op shop jumper section from now on.
And here are some pants im working on made in a vintage wool. Theyre going to be itchy but ill wear leggings under. Dont even ask why im making winter clothes in spring because I cant answer you.
I think nice embroidered pockets will look great on these.
Hope your enjoying a lovely spring weekend!
P.S. If you love little girls cotton old fashioned bikinis but havent been able to find any
