Preppy in Plaid Sweatshirt

This was an easy sweatshirt to make, and it reminds me of the collegiate sweatshirts we all wore back at American Universities in the 90’s, baggy in the body, with cuffs and a waistband. I followed the pattern, except I added a neckline binding. I needed to do this, because the plaid fabric is loosely woven and fringes easily, and overlays a layer of ponte underneath. More photos and how to add a neck binding tutorial on my website www.poppiesandthistle.com
