Somehow I did manage to make a sweatshirt AND a pair of tracksuit pants for Julian - a complete miracle!
Once again I used patterns out of Ottobre magazine. This is the sweatshirt (on the left):
Unfortunately I stuffed up the neckline of the sweatshirt and had to cut out the ribbing and use self-ribbing (is that what it is called?) instead. I also stuffed up the tracksuit pants and the pockets are too big and definitely not big enough to hold a Matchbox car. Thankfully Julian hasn't noticed yet...
I love the sizing of Ottobre as it is reasonably slim fitting and if it says it fits 98cm tall, it does. If you do have a solid child, they also have a few patterns in a relaxed fit. I cut a straight 98cm for both the Sweatshirt and trackpants and they are both quite snug. I will make another of both but I will increase the length of the pants to give me more wear out of them (Julian continues to grow at 1.5cm per month!).
I used a printed Sweatshirt fabric with a coral fleece backing which I picked up at Spotlight during their 40%off sale over Easter. I bought the navy sweatshirting at the same time. All up this outfit cost less than $10 which makes me very happy!
