Another Day, Another Lane

I struggle with my relationship with fabric.  I love fun, colorful prints but tend to gravitate towards solids or simple stripes in my everyday wardrobe.  I picked up this gorgeous floral sweatshirt fabric one night from Diana.  It paired perfectly with the cobalt blue french terry I had left over from this sweatshirt. The colors are so pretty but I worried the print would be overwhelming on me.  So it sat there…

I considered another Bimaa for my girls- they usually get all the fun prints that I don’t think I can wear.  Then I found a simple sweatshirt on Pinterest that used a solid as the main body and even had contrast cuffs and hood.  Perfect compromise!

I used the Lane Raglan from Hey June (yet again).  This was my first time using the thumb hole cuffs and I love them!  I sized up a size since the floral has very little stretch.  I also added the kangaroo pocket from the Halifax Hoodie.  The result- another one of those sweatshirts that I never want to take off!
