I made this raglan sweatshirt for my boyfriend’s birthday. To try to get an idea of what colors he would want to wear, I asked and he said “deep ocean or sunset colors.” So I decided to use 2 colors instead of one. The only modifications were that I lined the hood, added a hood drawstring (and grommets) and elastic at the bottom. I used a reverse applique technique to add the water droplet underneath the hood, and now I want to add reverse appliques to everything I make because it was easy and looks cool. Hope he likes it!
