And the deep-freeze continues…..
So I’ve been hibernating indoors and sewing, and sewing, and sewing.
I’ve made another version of this same pattern (in the next size up, medium) using a leftover piece of green marbled flannel that was left over from making my hubby a bathrobe. It took me an entire day of shuffling the pattern pieces on the fabric so they’d fit. I won! It’s like a contest you know.
My first was in the black and white checked flannel. It’s warm and cozy! And actually fits well except the sleeves are tight and I have trouble pulling it over my head to take it off.
While I was shuffling the pattern pieces around for the green variation I was dreaming of embellishments. I changed the collar making it smaller and a stand up version.
I really like the way this one turned out. I used bias strips sewn into tubes then top-stitched them in place. The closures are plastic snaps.
How are you keeping warm? I’d love to hear from you.
