Today I’m part of the Sew Yourself Some Love tour with Pattern Revolution. The term “selfish sewing” never appealed to me because sewing for yourself can be good and healthy. Especially as mothers, women need to take care of themselves. Sewing has been a healthy, satisfying hobby for me, and I’m grateful I get to share with you readers and that you keep coming back! I have a really fun sweatshirt to share today that is nursing friendly and not hard to create with a little pattern alteration.
I will have to wear a nursing tank underneath, but I’m excited to have a warm sweatshirt to wear that will have easy access. I used a solid gray sweatshirt fabric. I know it’s a little boring, but I wear solids more often than I wear anything else and I wanted to make something that I would wear. I thought about putting together a trendier outfit for this photoshoot, but let’s be honest, this is how I will be wearing this sweatshirt for the next couple of months: sweatshirt, tank, leggings, and comfortable shoes. I love how comfortable this outfit is, so I thought I’d show how it’d really be worn.
I love the cowl neck on this sweatshirt. I love the look and feel of hoodies, but the hood often gets bulky and uncomfortable. I find myself not choosing hoodies to put on simply because I don’t want to put my head through the neck. I think this cowl is a better option; I’m hoping it won’t hold me back from wearing it a lot.
