Now, you may have noticed that I’ve been on a California Style/Roxy kick lately. A’s California Calling dress was a repurpose project made entirely from surf-brand clothing. I love that dress on my girl! It’s so fun, and so perfect for this sunny state in which we live.

So when Amy asked me to sew up a pattern and participate in the Tour, I knew exactly which fabric would come into play. It’s from a Roxy dress, of course! What else? You know how I love all things Roxy.

I color blocked the sleeves and hoodie using fabrics from a t-shirt from Nordstrom, and another from Express. The best thing about buying tees from expensive-ish stores is that they last a loooong time and still look good! The body of the dress comes from the afore-mentioned Roxy dress. Don’t you love that pink and orange? Mmm.

This pattern was just released for the Spring line and is called (obviously!) the Hangout Hoodie. It comes in both a dress and t-shirt style, so the boys don’t have to feel left out. Seriously, Hudson is already asking for his own t-shirt version!

I think this hoodie is absolutely perfect for beach wear! My girl spent the whole day in her swimsuit, but once evening approached and the cool air blew in from the sea, she put the hood right on and wouldn’t take it off. In fact, we have a hard time getting this hood off her anytime, ever.

I don’t know why my kids love hoods so much, they just do. Are your kids like that? Or is it just my little sillies?

“The sun is in my eyes mo-om!”

If you’re ready to start sewing for Spring and Summer, I definitely suggest picking up the pattern. It’s available for purchase here, and you simply print out the pieces, tape them together, and cut out the correct size. I sewed A a 3T (she’s three years old) and it fits perfectly with room to grow. That’s my fave kind of sizing!

Don’t forget to check out what else the Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop has to offer! I particularly like their skinny jeans, the new Starboard Jacket, and these summer pjs. Click on the photo below to visit the shop!
