We interrupt regular scheduled programming...

An interruption in my regular sewing schedule to participate in The Sew Weekly challenge, Lounging Around!

I've had this fabric in my stash for quite some time.

Now anyone who knows me will probably be saying "little pink flowers, you? Really?"

What can I say? I have pink skeletons in my fabric closet.

What I did like about this fabric was the knit on side and the soft fleece on the other. Perfect for Winnipeg winter loungewear, no? The pattern: Simplicity 2289. I like the collar and pockets big enough to hold a book.

The pattern was easy to work with, only five pattern pieces (front, back, collar, cuff, and pockets). I was able to whip this up in no time.

It is not the best sewing that I've done. But hey, it's not like this sexy number is going to get any close inspection.

Besides it was all about warm weather comfort that I was aiming for. I think I accomplished what I was aiming for with this one, along with being cozy and roomy enough for late night snackin'.

Would I recommend the pattern? Absolutely.    


  1. Looks super cozy! I need to make myself some comfy (and warm) lounge wear for this winter. My poor old hoodies have seen better days, and it's time to replace them. Maybe I need to try out this pattern. :)

  2. Heather, I would recommend this pattern! It is super cozy and there is nothing I would change or alter about it. Actually I wouldn't mind making another one in a knit fabric.


McCall's 7630: Pullover Top

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
