Linden Sweatshirt made in Aime Comme Marie Flaming'Oh Fabric

Finally got around to my latest Autumn make using this lush Flaming'Oh Sweatshirt fabric. This high quality cotton jersey fabric has a great weight to it and feels amazing to wear, made and printed in France, these pink feathers are really quite special. I wanted to keep it simple and make one of my favourite sewing patterns the Linden Sweatshirt from Grainline Studio. I could make these all day long, plain ones, patterned ones, mixed combo ones... the list goes on!I like this sewing pattern because the cuff style hems are straight forward and such a classic raglan design that comes together quickly - I like quick sewing! I did make this sweatshirt on a (recently acquired) serger but it's quite simple sewing this fabric on a standard sewing machine. There are some great tutorials on 'sewing with knits' online. Wendy from MIY kindly sent in this tutorial Sewing Seams in Knits which is a great place to start. Also I spotted this guide for cutting out sewing patterns on jerseys from Thread Theory How to Sew With Knits. Looking forward to wearing this, a subtle splash of colour amongst my denim jeans and the 'greys'!
