I’ve had a hoodie like this on my Pinterest board and I was too excited when I saw Terra’s Treasure’s (affl. link) version pop up in my Facebook feed. Of course I jumped at the chance to test this beauty!
Testing this also meant a chance to take pics of Alex and I don’t know which I was more excited for.
This kid just kills me and I had so much fun shooting and editing these pics.
But you guys are here for the sweatshirt right?!! This pattern is fantastic! The colorblocking is so, so cool!
The construction is trickier than your basic hoodie but the result is worth the extra time.
I’m a sucker for colorblocking and love that Terra has done all the work for you. The v-pattern is so unique and goes together great. It takes a little patience to get the sleeves lined up just right and mine aren’t perfect everywhere but once on it’s hard to notice.
I used fabulous french terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. He’s a fan and even picked the colors (that just happen to be his school colors).
The pocket in this hoodie is just fantastic! I’m still getting the hang of welt pockets and these were simple and the directions were great. The pocket is one long piece inside which adds to the cool factor.
He was so excited about his sweatshirt that he wore it to school the very next day- high compliment from a middle schooler.
You can pick up your pattern here (affl. link) and check out all the other great versions sewn up during testing! This pattern comes in sizes 6-12 months all the way up to 16! How fantastic is that?!! And it’s on sale through today for only $7!
Gotta love this kid!
