Let’s get something out of the way quickly – that is fake vinyl trim up there! HA! Please refer to any previous outfit posts like this to see what it actually looks like. That is a 2 foot long, $1.80 piece of heaven from Menards. Someday, we will actually put trim up. Someday.
Anyways, I’m going to try and be a little more intentional when I sew something, at least for me! I really appreciate googling and finding info from other folks when I’m deciding to buy a pattern or not.
Pattern Review: Modkid Breeann Hooded Top*
This is a KIDS pattern. I have a 35″ bust and sewed the 16 in a lightweight knit without any issues or bodice adjustments. I think it would be a perfect PDF sewing pattern for a tween or teen!
Fabric I used:
Changes I made:
- I lined the hood
- I stabilized the shoulder seams with clear elastic
- I added the armband
- Added 1/2 inch to pattern as cut (I just didn’t cut the bottom line of the bodice, and used the bottom of the page as the cutting line, and I did the waistband differently so it was about 3″ wide when folded.
What I might do if I make it again:
Hmm nothing! Maybe play with different pocket options?
I love it! It fits really well; I was a little nervous that it wouldn’t fit over my (giant) head but it did just fine. The pattern was a breeze to cut and tape and was very professionally done.
Spring colors! Now if only it was warmer than 8 degrees out.
I’ll be linking this up to two fun link-ups – one with the Sewcialists blog for #bluefebruary and the other with Pattern Revolution for #selfcaresewing!
