Starting on Fall Sewing

You would think I lived in an area that wouldn’t still be reaching the 100’s for another month since I’ve already started sewing sweaters. I couldn’t resist when this fabric came in!

Boho Fabrics just stocked this new hacci sweater knit (among others), and it is glorious! It’s great for adults and kids. The scale looks so cute on little clothing. The new listings are now live!

When the fabric was on its way, I was originally planning on sewing up a cardigan. But, as usually happens when I get fabric in my hands, I changed my mind! I wanted a comfy sweater to wear that could easily go from day to night.

The fabric isn’t very thick, but also isn’t a loose weave that an undershirt/tank is needed. It is pretty soft and comfy, though.

I decided to sew up a Studio to Street by Greenstyle Creations. I’ve made two before, but haven’t done a sweater version. I made a short sleeve version and a crop hoodie. For this version, I wanted something I could dress up a bit for a casual evening out.

I opted on the crew neck front and deep V back. I love the deep V back! It’s such a cute, unexpected addition to the top… especially in a sweater knit.

I chose the longer curved hem and added cuffs to the long sleeves. I love curved hems on tops. They add a nice detail-and nice shaping around your butt. πŸ™‚

I had a little extra fabric, so I decided to sew up a Raglan sweater for the Little. I went with the Nico Raglan by Jalie. This pattern is great, as the pattern includes toddler through men’s sizing. It is also my first paper pattern I have purchased in about ten years!Β I made a 3T so the Little would have some growing room, and to have a looser fit. I also opted to add cuffs to give it more of a sweater look. I almost like the scale of the print on the little version more!

I don’t have any modeled photos since I don’t want to put my kiddo in a sweater when it doesn’t get below 95 degrees when the sun is up. πŸ˜‚ Maybe I’ll update in a few months!

I will definitely be rocking this top all winter! Dare I say I’m looking forward to cooler weather? Maybe just to sew up more sweaters… What is your favorite season to sew for?
