It’s kind of a rare occasion when I have enough of one towel design to create a whole hoodie around it. I was super excited to come across a little stockpile of these towels all in the same place, all with the same minimal amount of wear. In all honesty, I stacked them up and put them in my collection and looked at them in all their glory for a good while before I felt ready to cut them. I love the design work on them, the colors really pop and this is the kind of statement piece that you can dress up on New Years Eve or throw on with a pair of jeans to go see Billy Strings. I salvaged these vintage velvet balls from a tapestry I used to create another coat and they work perfectly with these towels.
Please note that this jacket does have inside pockets, I didn’t want to interrupt the flow of the design on the front. Also, take note that these are 3/4 length sleeves in order to keep the balls up and out of your way.
I try to give my best guess on the sizing but encourage you to always use your measurements. It can be tricky to measure your own body and add in enough extra space for ease and such so my best advice is to measure something you already have and love the fit of. That being said, based on the measurements, this hoodie would likely be best for someone who generally wears a S/M depending on how you like the fit.
Pit to pit, 22″
Sleeve, 21″ including the balls
The materials I use are vintage and will show some wear and minor imperfections. This is a beautiful patina that comes from years of love and mending. Any major imperfections are carefully repaired through visible mending. My goal is first to make you a garment that is sturdy af and will last a lifetime and second, a one of a kind piece of wearable art. I recommend washing your new garment on a gentle cycle and laying flat to dry. Thank you for being part of Mother Nature’s Army by supporting slow fashion.
