Football season is well under way, so it's about time I sewed up some collegiate wear! Avery loves it when Todd takes her to Ole Miss for sporting events. She took a keen interest in women's volleyball at their last such outing. With her height, maybe we'll see her on a court some day.
For this shirt, I started with the Modkid Breeann hooded top, but I made a few changes along the way. The Breeann is sized for teens with a range of 8/9 to 16. I've generally been sewing size 7 for Avery with size 8 or 9 in length. To account for the teen sizing, I just increased my seam allowance a bit. The neckline ended up snug, but it will work.
I made two changes to the original pattern and wrote tutorials on the Modkid blog for each.
First, I omitted the kangaroo pocket and swapped the waistband for a shirttail hem. She may not need it yet, but I like the asymmetrical look and the added bonus of more coverage. You can find the shirttail hem tutorial here.
The next change was to line the hood. It's a super simple mod that adds warmth and an opportunity for a pop of another color. You can find the lined hood tutorial here.
