Are you waiting for the weather to change? So am I! I am done with the cold, and we did not get any snow this year, so I have no need for this winter anymore. Plus, with all those mild temperatures over here, everyone is getting sick. So out with winter, let’s have a short spring and a long summer. Who is signing my petition?!

To get in the mood, I am sewing summer clothing. Of course, the real reason is that her closet is too full, and I need an excuse to continue the sewing. So, a short-sleeved, hooded Semper Sweater it is. No cowl, because she doesn’t like them. Although that still doesn’t stop me from sewing cowls.

The Swan fabric is one of the first fabrics I bought at Joyfits. So this fabric has been in my closet for over two years now. Really! I never knew what to make from it. And I bought 2m! By now, I have about half of it left. I sewed a dress out of it first but did not like the dress that was such a waste of fabric. It happens. I am over it. I am really.

With the addition of solids, I love this shirt. It suits the Swan fabric. Not too busy, but still fun. And do not forget girly, because the Diva is turning into a real lady more and more. Maybe one day she will even play with dolls and not just cars anymore.

After seeing her brother making hearts with his hand so many times (it’s like his signature pose) she had to try. Getting there, but she needs to practice 😉

I really like the short sleeves on a hooded shirt. Hubby not so much. But I am like my child, stubborn minded. I’ll sew some more short-sleeved hoodies soon.

A fun note. The Semper Sweater will be released after Easter, and you do not want to miss out on the release sale. Sofilantjes release sales are short and sweet 😉

    This fabric combination is awesome, but I can imagine a dress without contrast being a bit boring. You did not recut the dress? I am also a huge fan of short sleeves and hoods, hoods for the win always and on everything!

      I did not no. I did make underwear out of the dress…. lol So the fabric is partly saved.
