Hey June Halifax Hoodie

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

You know a garment is well loved when it is washed and worn numerous times before ever getting photographed and blogged. The Hey June Halifax Hoodie quickly jumped to the top of my list of favorite makes for myself. Even Texas temperatures have dipped pretty low this year, so a cozy, warm sweatshirt was needed in my rotation. This is View D with the drawstring omitted. 

I managed to sew this Halifax just in time for a girls trip to New York City with my Mom and sister. Our journey started with a 5 hour flight delay and ended with us rushing to make it in time for our Hamilton tickets. Let me just say that a Halifax is perfect for airports and travel, but it wasn't exactly what I had planned for the theater. At least I was in nicer boots, not sneakers! It certainly didn't dampen my delight in the show. Hamilton is the best show I have ever seen!! I have the sound track on repeat, when the kids aren't around of course. 

The french terry fabric is from Walmart. Once again, I reach for the cheap stuff when I try out a new to me pattern. This was seriously $1 per yard. After washing and sewing with it, I went back to try to get more, but it was gone. The looped side is this stripe, and the other side is a solid gray. You can see it in my Instagram post

I made the size large, but slimmed down somewhere between a medium and large. I think I would start with the medium next time, but keep the same width I used. This one would be perfect for extra layers underneath.
