Outfit of the day - Sweatshirt Saturday

My Saturdays are usually spent sleeping in, having a late breakfast, taxing the boys to their various practices (golf for Nathan, swimming for Daniel), and a family errand or two. I like to look put together, comfortable and casual. This fashion sweatshirt I made while pregnant is perfect for that. I paired it white my red leather jacket, waxed skinny black jeans and metallic wedges.


I was hoping to post the coat I've been working on for the past few weeks but I still have some finishing to do on it and don't want to rush my way through. After wrangling large amounts of fabric around and putting up with the mess of clipped threads and graded seam bits, the finishing of a lined garment is always my favorite part.

  5. Looking great as always Amanda. Love your sweatshirt. I just made one using a faux fur front piece , not blogged yet, and I've worn it twice in five days! How does a mom of a new baby sleep in??? Amazing!1

    1. Thanks Diana! I am intrigued by a faux fur sweatshirt - sounds really cool. The baby does wake up early, usually about 6 or 7. But after I feel him I put him back to bed and he'll sleep until 9 or 10. He's a good sleeper, which is a blessing.

    1. Thank you Emadethis! The texture does add some bulk, but I think it's fine on a sweatshirt and I love unusual fabrics.
