Sports Luxe fleeces and hoodies

I wrote a previous post about the current Sports Luxe style, with some patterns for ‘designer’ sweatshirts.
How about some designer style for your fleeces and hoodies 😀

Interesting. I often don’t pick patterns for raglan styles as I don’t wear them myself. This time I wasn’t deliberately avoiding them, as I think of them as classic for the sports style. But I haven’t found many.

If you’re still dubious about this style : YouLookFab has a new post about ‘loungewear‘ including sweat pants and hoodies.

Use high quality fabrics and trims for a casual Sports Luxe look. Or a modern shine/ sheer/ sequin fabric for a party version of the style. What is your favourite way of feeling and looking relaxed 😀

    thanks for this post – I’m fantasizing about making a nice hoodie that actually fits me!

    Fun! I am now thinking about a wonderful piece of wool gauze that I have — I’ve been wondering, but perhaps it wants to be a hoodie?

  3. Carol Says:

    Do you know of any fleece hoodie patterns for children? Would appreciate some help. Love reading your blog! Thanks

      I don’t keep up with children’s patterns and there are many small specialist companies, but these styles are easy to find from big companies.
      At least one from Jalie and McCall’s.
      Several at Kwik Sew
      and see The Rainshed for active outerwear patterns.
