On two separate occasions we purchased the fabrics that make up this sweater. When I spotted them together in my stash I knew they would make an awesome colour-blocked Paxson. Both fabrics are french terry which is a loop backed sweat-shirting.
At the recent Fabricabrac – a fair where sellers sell their unused fabric. I found Paul a few different fabrics pictured below including the white printed sweatshirt. The print was described in a way which made me think it would be perfect for Paul. I thought it would be perfect for another colour blocked sweatshirt. I raced around other stallholders and sourced all the fabrics for this project for a measly $10.
As with my earlier version I used fabrics of the same weight. I don’t recommend mixing fabrics you don’t want a fleecy sweater mixed with a summer weight fabric. The print reminds me of Keith Harring’s artworks.
Paul is now able to achieve a full outfit made by me now that I’ve made him jeans!
Thanks for reading! keep in touch.
