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!
