Can you say it three times fast? Comfy coral cowl?
Fall is in full swing and it's time to get out the warm and comfy. I recently tried on a cowl-neck sweatshirt that I really liked, but only came in gray and black. I'm a girl that loves colors and thought, I bet I can make this.
I used the Lane Raglan pattern from Hey June as my starting point. My pattern is cut out as an extra small, but for this I added a little width and length for a looser fit.
I also tried to angle the hem from the back to front. The goal was a fit that would cover my bum. It's a personal preference, but I pretty much will only wear leggings if my bum is covered. Mission accomplished here.
The fabric I used is a sort of micro fleece. It's super soft and stretchy, but wasn't easy to sew with. The cut edges curled quite a bit and made it difficult to sew the bottom band and neck. Overall, I think it's cute and it's definitely comfortable. Now I'm on the hunt for a better fabric for my next one. I'm thinking french terry. Any suggestions?
