It’s time for the third garment for my new activewear mini-wardrobe, a retro style fleece hoodie jacket. This time I’m drafting the pattern myself and I want to find that perfect mix with a 60’s style knit sweater and the Lululemon Scuba jacket. Not sure I’ll succeed, as I’m still tweaking my base hoodie pattern. But hopefully I’ll get close enough!
The fabric I’m using is a stretch fleece with a very interesting pattern. I found it at Stoff and Stil, but it’s probably some kind of manufacturer dead stock fabric that was discarded since it has a few snags and irregularities, but they are easy to work around.
Hopefully I will have time to make this jacket during the Holidays, but I’m not counting on it, since there will be lots of other things going on, including some family and travel time.
