It's getting so cold and I plan on doing everything in my power to stay warm!
I am that person who is always cold. So when I saw this sweater knit with a fleece backing, I was intrigued! I made this dress and have a little bit leftover that I am hoping to use for a top.
this fabric, which is a sweater knit that feels like fleece on the inside. It is very nice and warm. This is my 1st time sewing a sweater knit and I loved it. It is very forgiving as the texture hides and sewing mistakes :)
For the pattern, I used McCall's 6886 that I previously used HERE
Here is the back view:
LOVE the drape on the cowl. It is self-lined, so super warm . I free-handed the cowl neck. It was very easy to do. I will be adding a tutorial on this on my blog soon.
You probably did not notice it yet, but the cowl neck is stand-alone
I really was opposed to doing this initially, but eventually decided to do it. I have been wanting to simplify and downsize my wardrobe, so having pieces that can mix and match to create more looks is key. Deciding to make the cowl separate allows me to wear both pieces many ways.
The black dress can be worn with many other scarves, and the chunky cowl can be added to other looks as neck warmer.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post. I would love to sew with this fabric again! I highly recommend it. Let me know what y'all are working on. Love to hear about your sewing projects.
