recycled t shirt hoodie
I finished another sundress for myself, and even though it's still obscenely hot this week, I started on some fall clothes for Travis. My favorite so far is this recycled hoodie pattern from lil blue boo. I know I am going to make several of these. This is completely recycled out of old t-shirts we had laying around. Such a great use for my husband's favorite Pavement shirt, it had a bunch of holes but he still liked it, so I ordered him a new one and took scissors to the old one.
This pattern is SO FUN to make. I thought the instructions were so thorough and easy to understand. I especially love how the sleeves are constructed so super easily and don't have to be set-in. Set-in sleeves are a bummer. I'm currently working on a tie dye version for my 9 year old.
Here is another finished sundress, Burda 8071, which I wore to our friends, Tom and Kristina's, wedding last week. Probably the most fun wedding I've ever been to! It was a 3 day camp out complete with swimming, boating and campfires. They even had a sundae bar instead of the usual wedding cake. We had a blast!
