Pinterest-inspired Halifax

You know how sometimes you love something so much, you save it twice on Pinterest? Pretty sure that happened to me with this sweatshirt.

I’ve been wanting to recreate this for some time, but the moment was finally right when I ran across an amazing reverse French terry from LA Finch Fabrics (sold out, sorry!). The loops are on the side with the stripes, rather than the back, giving the front some texture.

I used the Hey June Halifax pattern, the plain view with the cowl neck. I added eyelets to the cowl and a drawstring. Normally, I’m not into drawstrings (they always seem to get lost in the wash) but I think the hardware and the drawstring elevate the look a bit. The eyelets were from my stash and are the Dritz brand. The drawstring cord was purchased on Etsy, it's the gift that keeps on giving as I had 80 gazillion yards.

This is a size small. The fabric doesn’t have much stretch so this is just a bit bigger than a shirt. I can fit a tank top underneath but I’m not sure I’ll try it with a loose T-shirt.

This was a super quick sew since I’ve already made the pattern before. It turned out so much like my inspiration, I love it!
