one more sewing project


I have a pretty big collection of Ponte knits. I've made skirts and cardigans, but to match my more casual lifestyle, I made this pullover hoodie. The trim is a foldover knit binding - I didn't want to use regular woven double fold binding, as it would interfere with the stretch of the Ponte. So the foldover braid is perfect. Luckily, Fabricland had a dark green that works with the green of the knit. This is super comfortable - perfect for tossing over my pajamas when I don't feel like getting dressed right away, but need a little more coverage.

Its gorgeous Sandra. When you are finished with the sewing 'bug' could you send it to mee. I have a large fabric stash and just never get round to it. I could use some skirts.

I just picked up some knits from the clearance table that might work for this! I've never sewn a sweater, that's always been something to knit, LOL.
