Hey Everybody...

Its been awhile since I posted, so I couldnt wait to share this.  

I have always absoultely loved heather grey fleece sweatshirts . Don't know why... but I have  Smiley  I almost died when I found some sweatshirt material for dirt cheap at a local store here in Portland called S.C.R.A.P.  I am currently also obsessed with wrap dresses...so i thought wouldn't  it be funky to combine the two?

And the Sweatshirt Wrap Dress was born   Smiley  I didn't use a pattern and it was fairly easy to make ...except for the binding which took entirely too long.  But all in all,   I am very pleased with the results.   Can't wait to wear it with a long sleeve tee, tights and a pair of boots.

So whatcha think?

P.S.  Don't pay any attention to the way I look in the pictures...it was taken really late at nite.

Hey, it's great.

I personally hate sweatshirts, because they are so unflattering on all body types. But you made them actually fit on you.

I have a thing with the gray t-shirt, but have not found any cheap. When I do I'll have my raglan t-shit madness. Smiley

Hey distimica, thanks. 

I guess what I should have said was that I like the material. I too find sweatshirts very unflattering.  It's just something about the color... Perfect blend of black and white.  I have a thing for grey t-shirts as well. I have a few GAP favorite tees  (that are at least 5 yrs old)that I wear at least once a week Smiley

Love, love, love wrap dresses. And making one out of sweatshirt material sounds like jimjams that you could actually wear out. Lovely concept, and very pretty dress.
