Ugly Sweater Party with Petite Stitchery

I love a good party so I was all on board when Petite Stitchery  said they were hosting an Ugly Sweater Party.  Who doesn’t love a fun ugly sweater?!!

I’ve loved the Rosemary Cowl Crop since the very first preview I saw and knew it would be perfect for this tour.

I think an ugly sweater is all about upcycling so for my version I grabbed a cozy blanket from good ol’ Wal-mart.  It worked perfect and I loved being able to use the blanket edge for the bottom hem too!

I did a little tricky hacking to make the sweater just one layer.  This fleece is so thick and cozy that I didn’t want to add too much bulk.  I used a scuba knit stripe for the cowl and cuffs.  I sewed the cowl on like a neckband.  The sleeve cuffs kinda stumped me.  They are sewn like a lining about 7 inches up the sleeve and rolled up for a nice, thick contrast cuff.
