Royale with Cheese

Last week I had mentioned that I was starting a few Beloved Shirts inspired items…. and today I have the first one to show you. This one is a Jalie 3355 sweatshirt made in an all-over hamburger print with contrasting bands….. my family (except Easton who thought it was awesome we would have “matching” sweatshirts) may be a bit embarrassed that I plan on wearing this out, but I sort of love it. I call it, my “Royale with Cheese” top.

Construction on this one was quick and easy. Both the fabric and the pattern sewed up nicely so I had this sweatshirt finished by the end of the morning. The fit is great, but is slightly “fitted” (for lack of a better word) – if you’re looking for something that is a bit more loose, I would suggest going up several sizes for a roomier sweatshirt.

Now for a few finishing touches on Easton’s hoodie and we’ll be ready for some interesting looks this fall.
