I was so excited to be included in the testing of New Horizons Designs newest pattern, Olympia Pullover. When Terra had mentioned in the Facebook group the thought of a summer hoodie, I was definitely on board. Then, I was so excited to test the pattern.
This is my the final product of my testing. I had just a bit of Raspberry Creek Fabrics Tropical Floral on Oatmeal French Terry from last summer left. I could not believe that I fit so much of the pattern on that small cut of fabric.
I also made myself the Portlander Shorts and Marbella Tank to go with it. They are in Teal Jersey Knit from Raspberry Creek Fabric. I had never made the Portlanders in Jersey Knit and was afraid it would be see through, but it was so drapey and comfortable! I like it better than the ones I’ve made in French Terry.
Here is a view of the side. I love that it shows off my tank top.
I made the Pullover in the Scoop Hood view. Here is a close up of the scoop:
Here is my first tester. In my experiences testing with her, Terra does an amazing job and making adjustments to get that perfect fit you expect with New Horizons Designs with each testing iteration. Given that, I would normally be hesitant to share this, but I really love it and am wearing the heck out of it.
I was hoping to share the fabric before it retired, but unfortunately it just did. I used my Raspberry Creek Fabrics Black and White Minimal Doodle Floral, Minimal 2.0 by Brittney Laidlaw Jersey Knit. Again, this was scraps from another project that I made.
Here is another good shot with the hood.
I would definitely recommend this pattern. I hope to make one for a beach cover up. My daughter also has designs on having one. So, I’ll need to sew that up, while it’s still summer weather.
