Simplicity 8529

This latest project is all about coziness and the best part is that I was able to use up the last bit of Kitia fabric left over from this project.  It's basically the coziest sweatshirt fleece ever and yes while everyone in this part of the sewing sphere is thinking spring, I know I'm going to get lots of wear out of this one.

The pattern, Simplicity 8529, is a keeper and this is actually my fifth version. Each one is unique as the fabric choices make a difference as to how this drapes on the body. The one thing that they all share is how easy and quickly this project comes together. This is the perfect project for a beginner. It's a well-drafted pattern, minimal pieces that fit together quickly and the added bonus are the excellent instructions included in this pattern. This Simplicity pattern offers sewing techniques for sewing knits and using an overlock/serger.
