I had bought a nice soft sweatshirt fleece from Tonitex. I wanted to make Simon and the boys a nice fizzy sweatshirt. The problem was I did not have a pattern for Simon. That is where Jalie 3355 comes in. I could NOW justify buying another Jalie Pattern.. YIPPPEEE!
I made the boys sweatshirts and now it was hubby's turn. The inside of the fabric is all soft and fuzzy. Super warm and comfy, or so I am told. I made myself a pink sweatshirt.
There are 3 items to this pattern. Sweatpants, sweatshirt or a hoodie. I used the sweatshirt pattern, sized "Y" for Simon. I did not make any pattern adjustments, for once!
By now I am used to sewing sweaters with cuffs and a ribbed neckband. I did not need to look at the instructions, but I did anyways. I am on vacation and the little one is not here today, he's at daycare. So my mind is open and clear! Why not take the extra 5 minutes?
Now I usually make one small mistake. It was going so well, then I realized I only cut out one arm. OOPS! Good thing I was frugal with my pattern placement. I had enough fabric.
The only changes I made were extra steps. I serged the edges of the rib after I sewed them on and then I topstitched it in place.
