my red prince's sweater jacket

Added Nov 17, 2008

by smvphotography

Phoenicia, New Y...






i’m so happy! i think this came out pretty awesome, maybe a little bigger than expected, but i think it works. doesn’t it look like something a prince would wear? i used the lydia pattern, some of my medallion shirt and drew the hood right off of an h&m hoodie. i sewed most of it on my mom’s serger, it was a lot of fun! i also did some hand stitching to get everything nice and neat. it is really comfy and super warm

Material Notes

sweater knit fabric from mood fabrics
pleated velvet ribbon from m&j trimmings





me for imagining and sewing

my mom for lending me her serger and her knowledge

    That looks really great!!! Normally I don’t like clothing that looks too feminin - but your creation links the cosy sweater knit fabric with precious-looking velvet ribbon - I love it !

    Wow – it looks absolutely amazing. You should be very proud of your sweater. I cant believe it came from the Lydia pattern. I adore the colour too.
