Striped Swallow Designs - Starry Night Sweatshirt

Well, looks like the holidays got in the way of getting updates made to the blog! There was lots of rushed sewing going on, but no time for sharing apparently!  One of the things I did work on right before Christmas and can finally share is the new Starry Night sweatshirt from Striped Swallow Designs. This design is cute and cozy!  Its the first of 4 upcoming releases in the newest collection, the Northern Lights Collection, which are all promised to be fancy sweatshirts! I can assure you I will own every one of them, since fancy + sweatshirts is the best combination possible!

The sweatshirt has long sleeves and a crew neck and a really neat gathered sleeve.  I believe the technical term for these sleeves would be a bishop sleeve.  A dress length was added later in testing and is the perfect additional option to the pattern!  I used one of my all time favorite floral french terry fabrics from So Sew English fabrics.  Its super springy, but has me thinking warm thoughts in this arctic blast we are currently living in!


I love a good sweatshirt that I can wear out and about and still feel cute in.  This one will get lots of wear, and I also can't wait to see what other designs are on the horizon for the rest of the collection! Stay tuned as I'll be sharing those as I make them as well!
