It's made with a bright pink sweatshirt fleece - knitted on the outside, fleecey (!) on the inside. I was right that it was a quick make - I got it all sewn up in one day.
These are the buttons I used. The bright pink didn't need a lift but these buttons certainly do the job!
There were a couple of things about the pattern that I wondered about.
Firstly, I cut 3" off the sleeve length and they still hang down over my hands. I don't know if it's because it's a unisex pattern but, surely, men don't have arms that long, do they??
The other thing that got me scratching my head is that I had to put interfacing on the neckband. Now, that's totally understandable knowing that the buttonholes and buttons will need more support than the fabric itself might give it. But, if I've ironed on interfacing to stabilise the neckband, how on earth and I expected to "stretch the neckband to fit the garment edge"? Weird!
Anyway, I will be wearing this a lot and, if my local shop ever gets any more sweatshirt fleece in, I might make another one too.
I was in said fabric shop today looking for some red material to make myself a skirt. They didn't have what I was looking for so I asked when it would be in stock again. I was told that, since they were doing a stocktake, they wouldn't be ordering any more fabric until the middle of April. What? A month before you even order it? That's just nuts. I feel an internet search coming on!
