After a whole week (and really the last few months) of lots of girl sewing I’m excited to bring something for my little guy today! The Game Day collection designed by Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake is SO fun! It’s the perfect mix of juvenile but still cool for older kids, even the girl said, “hey, that’s awesome fabric, can I get something too??”
After using knits for so much it takes some thought for me to decide on woven patterns. Recently this kid has outgrown ever jacket in the closet and while it’s starting to warm up, there are still those days that need something lightweight. So, jacket it was! Plus a jacket has been on my bucket list for awhile now, might as well check it off right?!
I looked at a few pattern options but ultimately loved the versatility that the Starboard Jacket from Peekaboo Pattern Shop provided. Can be made with wovens, knits, nylon, PUL, really almost anything since it doesn’t require any ease or stretch. While I did have to make something with my nemesis, the zipper, I have to say it really wasn’t so bad and I’m thrilled with how it turned out!
My favorite print from this line was the Sports Ticket in Navy, so I went with that for my main fabric. The jacket is full lined with knit gray and white 1″ stripes, also from Riley Blake.
Huge thank you to Lori for the invitation to join in her release tour! And to Riley Blake for generously sending both fabrics for this project. Also to Peekaboo Pattern Shop for providing a copy of the Starboard Jacket pattern!
