Linden Sweatshirt

So it turns out that I'm fairly predictable, in that 9 times out of 10 I will choose the brightest fabric in the store.  This ridiculously orange cotton jersey was definitely part of the majority.
It was kinda painful to cut out - sooo bright it hurt the eyes! The pattern I used is the Linden Sweatshirt by Grainline studios,  I seriously adore Jens patterns, they are always spot-on and so practical!
The top came together really easily, I sewed a size 6 at the top, drafted out to a 10 on the bottom, it was a fun 2hrs,  even though I was fighting with my overlocker the entire time - its so temperamental lately  - telling me it needs a service!!
I just overlocked, turned, then sewed down hems on the arms and bottom .  For the neckline I overlocked the neckband in, and topstitched it down.  The cotton jersey was such a dream to sew with!  It will be interesting to see how it holds up with the lots of wear this top is going to get!
Have you got friendly with Linden yet?
