Celestial Pullover

 Recently I tried out a new pattern for my ten year old daughter.  And I saw other women making the same shirt for them selves.  I checked out the measurements, and sure enough, the XL fit me.  How fun!  I decided to make one for myself.

The Project Sewn theme this week is to sew something to wear with a pair of your shoes.  I have these cute little boots with laces that I love.  I picked them up in Germany, where they have a shoe store on every corner.  They are lots of fun to wear, but are often pretty dressy.  So I thought it would be fun to sew something that is causal that could be worn with them.

Thus, I took the Figgy Celestial Pullover pattern and made it with a sweatshirt fabric with a funky grey and black print.  The fabric was a remnant and I barely had enough.

The turtle neck must be a knit fabric, so I used some soft, fuzzy knit I had in my stash. 

The shirt has wonderful pockets.

And, I have been wanting to participate in the leather accent trend.  But, I was not ready for the expense.  So I used a vinyl bias tape to trim the hems of the shirt.

If you are interested in hearing more from us, there are a couple ways for you to keep in touch!


  1. Great top! That vinyl detail is wonderful. I never would have thought of that!

  2. I love the fabulous tights with this outfit--so fun! That top looks cozy and cool at the same time.

  3. Oh, that vinyl bias tape on the hem is a genius idea! Can't wait to try it myself. I'll be had me at pink tights! Very cheery outfit!

  4. That is a great top and goes so well with your shoes. Well done! :)
