I can’t believe this is the third year of Jungle Januaries! Annie at Pretty Grievances cracks me up with her fabulous& witty herding of jungle printed makers. I couldn’t let it pass by unnoticed, could I? Especially when I had some animal print (I call it rusty leopard, hence the title) fromUKFabrics Online that I’d ordered a while ago (it’s still in stock) thinking that leopard legs would make me faster. I will never know as I have made it into a top.
But I am not going to tell you much about this top as it is an as yet unreleased top by Kitschy Koo, the High Top Hoodie. I was a pattern tester (yay!) & will save my review of it for when you can lay our hands on your own version to sew yourselves.
As part of my testing I decided that a sports version would make eminently good sense. You see it has lots of warm devices – extra long sleeves with thumb holes, a nice covered neck & what hoodie would be complete without said hoodie to keep the draughts at bay. And winter running needs must be met. The fabric incidentally is wicking & silky stretchy polyester – it would make wonderful leggings too.
I wore it here at the beach, really running (not just posing). It was a tad chill, hence the woolly hat. I am wearing it with my Ooh La La running leggings. It was such hard going that I almost wished I did have leopard legs because would they have made it easier? They might have? It was blimmin hard work anyway.
And just as I decided to goof around, a fellow goofer (my dog niece) decided to give me a whopper on my chops….
And I loved it.
And so did she.
