I was given the Lisse Cowl and Hoodie pattern by Terra's Treasures Designs for the blog tour. (It's even on sale right now!) I chose it because it would be a simple alteration to make it nursing-friendly, and without realizing it it's also a maternity sweatshirt. The overlap design makes it great for a growing bump.
The alterations I made to the pattern were to combine the two back pieces into one. For the front I used the pleated overlap piece and combined it with the bodice piece. I cut two opposites of these to create the overlapped front. I made a size medium in the tall length; it's AMAZING that there are two lengths built in! I always have to lengthen the bodice, so it was really nice not to have lengthen it. I loved using this pattern and can't wait to make an unaltered one next fall when my size isn't changing as drastically.
Join us through the whole blog tour and don't miss a day!!!
