Inspiration - Track Suit and Shop Talk

Today's inspiration is once again for children. However, this look could easily translate into adult clothing too.

Here's a little Juicy Couture Tracksuit. Isn't it cute? The hoodie has a little bit of embroidery on it along with the kangaroo pockets. It is made from a cotton/polyester terry. The pants have a draw string waistband and are also made from a cotton/polyester terry. Price tag: Hoodie - $78.00 to $82.00, Pants - $64.00 to $68.00 (pricing is dependent on size selected).

I think this would be very easy to duplicate. For the pants, you could try the 2-Piece Yoga Pant pattern by Silhouettes. There is also an adult version. I don't have a pattern exactly like the hoodie pictured but Hoodie & Top pattern by Silhouettes is similar. There is an adult version of this top, also. Both would need a slight modification to put a center zipper in but that would be very easy to do. Just remember to add the seam allowances. If anyone knows of a tutorial on how to turn a top pattern into a jacket, let me know where it is and I will add the link.

I have updated the Amy Butler section in the store. Many items have been restocked and there are new patterns available as well. I think I have all the current patterns and a few of the OOP patterns as well. Here's the direct link to Amy Butler Designs aka "Midwest Modern".

Happy Sewing!
