Quick and Easy Quilted Sweatshirts
Stauffer and Hatch (editors)
Personal bias: I do not get the appeal of any modified sweatshirt. They never live up to the hype and work required for even the most enthusiastic sewer. Why would this even be a fashion choice for a grown woman?
Since we have featured more than a few sweatshirt/quilting type of fashions, I will give this particular book some extra credit for being a little more fashionable. (By no means take this as an endorsement of such fashion.) A sweatshirt is a specific type of garment that is for specific situations, such as working out, staying home sick, pregnancy comfort, and bouts of depression. It isn’t necessarily cute and it doesn’t require style. That’s why it is a sweatshirt.
Who ever came up with this, just stop already. Make a nice jacket or make a sweatshirt. Don’t jam them together and call them fashion.
