If you’ve followed me for very long you know I’m all about comfort. Even in my fanciest dresses, I love to feel like I’m in my pajamas. So it’s no surprise I now have a closetful of variations on the Love Notions Sloane (affl. link). Sloane season also coincides with french terry season which means I will be living in comfort (and style!) for months!
Raspberry Creek Fabric carries my favorite french terry, a thick cozy cotton spandex blend, in tons of gorgeous prints in their in house CLUB fabric line. Diana at Raspberry Creek is a dear friend and has graciously sponsored most of my Sloane fabric posts. You definitely need to head over to check out her huge selection at amazing prices (not to mention lightning fast shipping!).
This newest line is something dreams are made of. I’m such a fan of olive and plum and this fabric is just beautiful! I used the floral on oatmeal base and plum dots for this version.
I did view B with the yoke and hood options. I did a size small and like the boxy fit of this pattern. The wider fit sets this apart from my other hoodie patterns and feels very fresh and trendy that way. It’s still classic and not too slouchy though too! This pattern can be made almost entirely on your serger making it sew up in a flash. I did a french seam on the hood and a little topstitching on my machine but even then this was easily a quick afternoon project. Am I speaking your language too?! I don’t think anyone ever has ‘too much’ sewing time!
I had to quickly throw this on hot off the machines so I could get quick pics. I was dying to wear this out trick-or-treating with my crew. It was perfect for our slightly crisp fall evening!
