I am digging Kids’ Clothing Week Challenge. I have had so many projects in my head, but I needed a swift kick in the pants to get started and actually try some of them.
I made my first shirt (based off Dana’s 90 minute shirt , but with a regular neckline) – and finally got my model to model it for me.
After making this shirt, I saw this urban hoodie that Andrea from The Train to Crazy made.

For a minute, I contemplated purchasing the pattern, but then I thought…. I made a shirt. How much harder could it be to make a sweatshirt? So I took one of my son’s hoodies (the one that makes him look particularly adorable), and traced the pieces. It just might be the coolest thing I’ve ever made. I hope that doesn’t sound like bragging. It’s more like complete shock that I actually did it, and it wasn’t a complete flop.
I left a few edges raw (around the pocket and neckline), because I liked how it looks. And lets be honest, it was much easier.
