Earth Tone Stripes

As soon as I saw this Earth Tone Strip French Terry fabric, I knew I had to turn it into a hoodie – it just had this great, beachy feel to it that would be perfect to wear on a cool summer evening. I made this the day before I went on my girl’s trip with the idea that I might get to wear it on an early morning that we headed to the park, but either the weather was too warm for it (it was in the 70s and 80s while we were there) or too cool (we had a rain shower that made the temperature drop into the upper 50s). This fabric does have great drape and I adore the colors, but it really is too thin for any type of cold(er) weather, so while it makes an adorable hoodie, it’s not necessarily “practical.”

Once again, I used Jalie’s Laurent pattern for this hoodie. I found that the sleeves are a few inches too long for my arms, so I really need to make that modification before I sew it up again. This works out fine because I can always roll up the cuff some or scrunch the arms without it being too bulky. Overall a cute little top, I just need the perfect weather to wear it in!
