It is getting to that time. That would be the time of year when it’s just cold enough outside that our lovely 100-year old house grows confused and can’t seem to keep itself solidly warm. It’s asking the same questions we are…is it cold? Is it warm? Considering that most of the time when I’m working from home I am sitting behind a computer, this level of confusion means I’m looking for two things….comfort and warmth. (Who am I kidding, when I work from home and don’t need to see anyone that is always what I’m looking for!) What I have found myself reaching for a lot this fall (prime temperature confusion season) is the ensemble pattern’s Sunday Everyday sweatshirt. It’s solving all my problems.
It’s got just the right amount of funkiness with the split hem, drop shoulders, a front to back hem twist and the fabulousness of pockets. I made mine a while ago but its the gift that just keeps giving. I made the tunic length so that I could wear it over leggings, which also upped the comfort level. If you want to see a version in the cropped length, check out this quilted sweatshirt.
The sweatshirt material is fuzzy inside and super comfy but I can’t for the life of me remember where I got it from. Sorry!
I found the pattern instructions clear and straightforward and the pattern easy to put together. I was a little concerned that the tunic length wouldn’t fit over my juicy hips so I graded out one size there and I’m glad I did. There is a full size difference between my top and my bottom and I really wanted this to fit at the platinum level of comfort.
I love to tuck my legs under me while I’m doing any work that requires sitting and I can do that in this sweatshirt. Win!
