Prim-cess sweatshirt 683 Medium
Prim Cess Sweatshirts--For the discriminating Primcess. I said descriminating, I didnt say picky! The Princess of Primitive, she has more creativity than she knows what to do with. More than her family knows what to do with. She has her own room for it, but it overflows into the dinning room, the family room, the parlor. (The parlor? Really?) And don't you go opening the closet door......
Blue, discharge dyed.
Exact size:Jerzees medium
When it is laid out flat, as in the photo, is measured sleeve cuff to sleeve cuff across the chest it is 56". Arm pit to arm pit across the front is 22 inches. From the back of the collar to the bottom it is 23 1/2 inches. Across the shoulder blades from sleeve seam to sleeve seam is 19 inches.
PRIMITIVE SWEATSHIRTS are a blast to make and I like wearing them myself. They last for years in my rough throw it in the truck, throw it in the tack box, throw it on the floor, throw it in the washer and dryer lifestyle.
Primitive Folk Art is a style that looks old and long stored and quickly made with the materials at hand. Often, it’s not, really.
All mine start with a brand new never worn sweatshirt. Sometimes I irregularly discharge the dye to make them look faded. Sometimes I hand dye them. The Gildan Heavyweight sweatshirts take the brilliant procion colors so well that I can’t resist taking advantage and dying them bright colors.
I use a lot of hand stitching in big prim style stitches, but it’s decorative only. Everything is sewn on securely by machine. You can see that in the photo if the inside front.
The collage is made from new, up cycled, and hand dyed stuff. It’s mostly raw edge appliqué to get that good prim raveled look. It may need a bit of a haircut after a few washings. Just clip loose threads about a half inch or 1 cm from the shirt. Don’t pull a thread. My grandmother taught me: “Never pull a thread.”
All of my textile art comes from a smoke free home with cat patrol.
