A quilt-style geodesic sweatshirt
As soon as I saw the geodesic, I knew I wanted to make it for my mom. She's a quilter, more than a garment sewist, and loves a good cozy sweatshirt.
I made myself one first, but decided it was a little to slim-fitting to truly qualify as a cozy sweatshirt (which makes sense, mom and I are more or less the same size, and as my measurements kind of on the bubble, I went down). I am super pleased with that decision, since I adore the straight, slim fit of mine, and I got do do more colour work on this one!
Second sew-up was pretty satisfyingly quick and easy, but matching points remains out of my reach. Gotta force myself to actually baste those rows together before actually sewing for that reason!
I am suuuuper happy with the pockets on this one. It's a really elegant pocket style overall, what with the triangles-in-triangles, and these ones came out really crisply. Plus my double-needle topstitching had a minimum of tunneling! It looks just lovely.
Fabric notes: The purple is a hemp-cotton french terry from Simplifi, the pink and blue are jaquard knit from L'oiseau, and the marble is a "summer sweat" french terry from Carden Fabrics' closing sale. Altogether quite light and soft, and I didn't need to worry too much about seam trimming, just where the triangle points met, really.
And the really important thing: mom loves it!
