The Fraser

09-fraserI’m a sucker for new patterns – so when Sewaholic came out with a new collection late last week, I couldn’t resist buying one that caught my eye: The Fraser Sweatshirt. Since I don’t have any sweat shirting (or cool laser cut leather like in the model photo) on hand, I’ve decided I’m going to test out this pattern in one of my fabrics from the September Knit Fix: the body of the shirt in black and white diamond rows and the accents in a solid black jersey. Even though this is labeled a sweatshirt, the description lists it as being more fitted so I hope this turns out more like a funky (everyday) shirt and doesn’t look too “sloppy” in the end – I’m also hoping I don’t need to make too many modifications for future shirts (I’m really hoping that I can make one like the model) since this is my first time working with a pattern from this company and my measurements aren’t quite in line with their sizing. If all goes well, I may have a finished shirt tomorrow!
