I wanted to make a comfy and casual everyday sweatshirt, which is not quite ordinary, but has some nice details. Luckily I found this pattern in Wenlan Chias book called Twinkle Sews (project: on the sidelines). At first I was a little scared because this “simple” sweatshirt has 14 different pattern pieces! But it really was not difficult and somehow reminded me on puzzles. ;) I like this pattern a lot because it gives you option for endless variation. I used some Japanese fabric (Lecien) that I had left for the bottom pocket and also decided to make matching buttons. Fun project and fun sweatshirt! :)
