I forgot how much I dislike velour....sigh...it sheds and it is also not very easy to sew with because it constantly moves. I had purchased this fabric to make Nik a velour tracksuit last winter but I never got around to sewing it because I was hit with a bad first trimester.
For KCW I thought it'd be a great time to finally make the tracksuit, however, the more I thought about the project, the more nervous I got about working with velour again. So after a lot of thinking I decided to reconsider my original idea and make another Varsity Cowl Pullover instead of a tracksuit. I know Nik loves the feel of velour and he loves pockets so I added side seam pockets to this velour version.
As you can see I didn't get too much sewing done...hopefully tonight I can finish this pullover and get started cutting out the fabric for the dress.
p.s. - Promise me that you won't ever let me sew with velour again!
