Brooklyn, New Yo...
I made this purple jersey wrap for my sis for her birthday. I’ve only made clothing for another person a few times, and always had their live, warm body right beside me for measuring and fitting. This was a challenge since sis lives across the continent in Bellevue, Washington, and because I wanted to surprise her.
I made the pattern using a wrap I already own as a base and integrated the shoulder and neck darts for soft gathers. I made the front long and tapered, so she can wrap it around herself, and later use the long ends as a nursing cover up (aka a “hooter hider”).
