Sewing With Knits: 5 Wardrobe Essentials »
Type of item: Clothing
A rather nasty fleece from my local shop that didn't sprint back if you stretched it, and actually would tear or break into holes. It was the only fleece they had - not much demand for fleece when the temperature rarely drops into the 70's
What was your inspiration?
I would not normally have made anything out of fleece - it's so hot here! But I am so keen to learn about sewing with knits that I am following the course religiously and I made the first project above.
You can read my full review of the course so far, and details of my experience with the hoodie pattern, and working with fleece, on my blog at http://so-sew-easy.com/fleece-hoodie-why/
What are you most proud of?
I waited for a windy day so I didn't melt taking the photos!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Do try out all of your stitches on some scraps first. I got over enthusiastic and made a mistake with the hem on my hoodie. Read why on my blog post.
