    Holiday Bleeker Sweatshirt


    I got this fab organic french terry from @minervadotcom and decided to sew up a holiday Bleeker sweatshirt (for the cozier celebration days) so to make it a little more festive, I used an iridescent organza for the ruffles!

    ✨ Whenever I sew with anything terry, I love using wooly nylon thread in my upper and lower loopers of my serger to keep all those terry loops from shedding as I wear it. The wooly nylon has a β€œloft” to it that fills in the looper stitches so you get a fully enclosed overlock stitch. Plus it’s super soft so the interior seams are comfortable.

    More details about this french terry fabric (it comes in 37 colors!) over on my Minerva page and Bleeker sweatshirt is available in English and Spanish versions on my website πŸ’œ


    I hope you find a beautiful fabric to recreate it and tag me over on Instagram @sewingandthecity if you do!

    Happy Sewing!
