Sinclair Patterns. The Alexis Relaxed Fit Hoodie

I was one of many who was chosen to test Sinclair Patterns, Alexis Hoodie. I thank them for giving me this opportunity.

I must admit, we are going into Summer over here, and l didn't really think l would get a chance to wear it before next year!

Melbourne hasn't let me down. In typical Melbourne fashion after finishing the dress, we had a week of 30 degrees, followed by a change in temperature to a more winter type day. This was finally my time to wear my new outfit!! Plus, it was Friday and a time for something more casual.

So, let me talk about the pattern.

I procrastinated initially about my fabric choice. In the end l settled on a ponte and for the sleeves a stretch knit from my stash.

It took me about 4 hours to put together. The pattern comes together easily. I like the fit of it (the pattern has now been altered to reflect suggestions from testers). The instructions are clear, and easy to follow.

This outfit works well with leggings or tights. Dress it up if you like with some high heels (preferably red, in my case),  and you have another look. Its soooo comfy, l feel like l've been in my pajamas all day, but, with a bit of style!

The compliments have been positive.

So, thank you Sinclair patterns for selecting me.  It was a challenge to get it made in a short time line, but l enjoyed the discussion amongst other testers. I do want to more pattern testing. So, if you are a pattern designer, you know where l am.

I have purchased another pattern off this company. You'll have to watch this space to see which one, that's after l finish an Ottobre dress, a Gertie dress .... And the list goes on.

Happy sewing everyone.

I was very flattered to find this morning that my instagram post on this hoodie was in the round up of instagram accounts on The Curvy Collective blog.  Thank you.
