Is it cold where you are? Here outside D.C., we’re often still wearing fall jackets at Thanksgiving, but it’s been a bit chiller than normal lately. I’m dreaming of all the cozy sweaters. If you are too, you will like today’s post. Here are four pieces from the archives to kick-start your sew-jo.
4 pieces to sew for cold weather
Lyndsey’s cream-colored Bento Tee made from a cotton sweater knit looks comfortable and polished all at once. This is a great pattern to make in other cuddly fabrics, too, like a French terry or merino wool knit. I actually have one cut out in a gray French Terry that is languishing in my sewing room. If I ever sew it up I’ll post about it. In the meantime, see Lyndsey’s post here.
I often think that I need more hooded sweatshirts in my wardrobe. And then I do nothing about it. If you’re motivated to sew your own, check out Emily’s tutorial to turn the Neighborhood Hoodie into a hooded pullover.See the post here.
