We love all things ‘space’ in this house. My 3 year old loves Buzz Lightyear and my 10 year old is fascinated by anything to do with the moon landings. So in honour of this new found interest, I started a little search and look what I found – the perfect fabric!
I started with a sweatshirt for Archie. I drafted this pattern myself based on his measurements, fairly straightforward to draft and a guaranteed fit. I thought that just some accents of the fabric would work, so I prepared shoulder panels and incorporated them into the sleeves. I went for a random pattern on each sleeve, no pattern matching here! The navy blue fleece is from Remnant Warehouse and the marle blue ribbing was a charity shop find. I am really happy with the result and surprisingly, so is my very fussy 10 year old!
The second sweatshirt I made was for Bertie. I used the Brindille & Twig Raglan sleeve pattern again, it’s such a great pattern and so easy. I thought we could get away with a full sleeve for him – it works really well I think.
