Sew Ready For Fall with Stylish Fabrics

What am on doing on what seems like the hostest and most humid day of the year? Yup, I'm dressing myself up for fall weather!



I did have some help thanks to Sylish Fabrics, I was sent 2 yards of this beautiful sweater knit to use for the purpose of this tour. I was also sent over by the Patterns for Pirates team the add on pack to the Raglan Slim Fit  to add the hood to the pattern I already love so much! As always, my opinions are my own!

So back to this hot and humid day...and me dressed like its getting cool outside! I can't say that I'm ready for fall to come just yet, but at least I have this oh so comfy hoody!


About the fabric... I chose based on color and what I thought the texture would be, not sure exactly what to expect since I shop a lot by touching fabrics. If I don't like what it feels like, I don't buy it. When the fabric arrived I was pleasently surprised at how soft and light weight it was.


So I couldn't just drape myself in this wonderfully soft fabric, so the next best thing was to make it a hoodie. My go to top pattern lately has been the Slim Fit Raglan by Patterns for Pirates....add on a hood and I'm a happy lady!


I have to admit, I've never sewn up this type of knit before. So with caution, a lot of clips to avoid having wonky seams and good ball point needles I got the job done. I added some twill tape at the neckline to stabilize it and avoid stretching it out and glad I did.


So if you don't mind...I need to get back into the AC and cool off!

  1. The sfr by P4P is definitely one of my favorite patterns. Just slim enough to be flattering, but not skin tight. And the add on pack is a great value too. This looks like the sort of piece that I would grab over and over again.
