Now who wouldn’t love a Christmas Hoody so when i was looking through their site i came across this ever so cute yet festive Sloth Print… I am such a sucker for Sloths they are just cute! Plus i had this design printed on the sweathshirt fabric so it would be extra snuggly!
The Stella Hoody by Tilly and The Buttons is a tried and tested pattern and knew i only needed to adjust the sleeve length to shorten it y 1″ and everything was ah ok! I went with a Size 6 for Bust, Size 7 for Waist and to an 8 for the hips, so it graded quite nicely between the sizes. Oh yes not forgetting a Sewing Injury too…. How on earth i managed to do this with a pin is beyond me!!
This fabric was a dream to sew with, and Mr Singer behaved quite nicely even when sewing buttonholes for the Drawstring openings! I always test my stitches on a piece of scrap to make sure the tension is right.
Instead of buying Cotton Tape i just bought a pair of Red laces from Ebay at just over a £1 which really sets the Hoddy off.
Here’s a few pics when hung on the hanger. No garment isn’t complete without a Kylie and the Machine label, this time I’ve gone for ‘You can’t buy this’ as it just suits this to a tee and when people ask me why i get it from i just point to my label hahahah!! Yeah i know… I’m Selfish!! LOL!
I have worn this Hoody quite a lot, I’ve forgotten how many times i have worn it to be honest! It’s been to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Harrogate, Christmas Shopping in Leeds and wearing at work too!
