Driftwood Hoodie by Striped Swallow Designs

Just wanted to pop in with quick post about the release of the Driftwood Hoodie by Striped Swallow Designs!  Love love love this comfy top!!  This was an awesome pattern to be a tester for!  I used an amazingly soft rayon spandex french terry from So Sew English Fabrics for it (I have it in 2 other colorways as well, so I was comfortable risking one cut on a pattern test!)  And just as I had anticipated... this turned out amazing!

There are some awesome details on this pattern that make it really unique!  I love the cowl and hood combination.  It is so cozy, but the cowl makes it slightly dressier in my opinion!  It also features a banded, curved hem with side vents.  The band makes for such a clean finish, and the curve makes it really flattering to wear over leggings!  The side vents are just icing on the cake of an awesome pattern!  Not to mention, it also has large kangaroo pocket that is a must have for any hoodie.

I love the versatility of this pattern. It comes in shirt length and tunic length.  I definitely see lots of various Driftwood hoodies in my future.  I love that it can be made with contrasting sleeves (they're raglan style by the way!)  Its a great way to use up smaller cuts of fabric that way!  I wore this one round all day and felt beautiful and comfortable!
