I’m Back!

March 15, 2015

Last summer didn’t end so well. I lost my brother in August and my world kinda stopped for a while. I haven’t blogged since then, but I did start sewing again a few months ago and it really helped me to start feeling a little more normal. I’ll try to post pictures of some of the stuff that I’ve made, but for right now I want to post some pictures of the top I made today.

Here’s Jalie’s raglan top (3245) with some modifications. I made it out of lavender and navy Polartec fleece and I really kinda love how it turned out.

I had to play around with the photo-editing to get a picture where top actually looked lavender–that’s why this photo has such crazy mood lighting.

As for the modifications, here’s what I did:

  • First, I made it way bigger than my usual size. In fact, I cut the largest size (FF) on the pattern. I wanted it to be loose and comfy.
  • I added a hood. I cut the hood out in navy to match the raglan sleeves and then I thought I would try lining the hood with the contrasting lavender. Because I used fleece, this lined hood borders on being too bulky, but I do love the contrasting colors.
  • I made the sleeves full length instead of 3/4 length.
  • I altered the hemline to make it more like a drop-tail top.

I took this photo in the bathroom and the color is a little better, but pictures in the bathroom just seem weird to me.

I’m super happy with this top. I might have to make six or seven more!!

P.S. Here are some better pictures–I’m working on my picture taking skills!
