Black & White Collection: Knot It Hoodie

Recently I partnered with BurdaStyle to create looks each month with their sewing patterns. If you've been following along then you know that I'm not one to follow many sewing patterns. I'm kind of a self-draft type of gal, but BurdaStyle has my type of sewing patterns. They're all pdf so you can just download them, print, and piece together right away. The designs are modern, unique, and simple to follow.

For my first few projects I wanted to do a Black N White themes sports collection. I've recently been getting into sewing sportswear and now that I've got the hang of it I wanted to make something that was one-of-a-kind. I've always been into creating textiles specifically with the technique macrame, which I wanted to add to the back panel. I sketched out my idea and then used the Hoodie 01/2017 as my pattern.

I cut it into strips using my rotary cutter. I then pulled the strips to create string and knotted them together.

For the fabric I used Stylish Fabrics Cotton Jersey Knit in black and white

I didn't really have a plan for the macrame pattern I honesty just started knotting it and came up with this.

I love how it turned out and it feels cool (literally and figuratively). I love the weight and feel to this cotton jersey. It has a nice medium weight but soft to the touch which is perfect for hoodies or long sleeve tops. I used it for the cording as well.
