In such cases I feel like throwing away the whole piece, but I know that I have to take some distance. An idea to solve it will come, but it takes a bit of time. The solution I came up with was putting in a contrasting piece in the hood. I could have cut a new hood of course but then I had to throw away the wrong cut pieces and that I just couldn't make myself to do that.
The second mistake, which contributed to my frustration over the wrong hood, was that I wanted a different than usual construction technique. The hood is double, it has a lining and I wanted the seam not to show. I wanted the seam to be between the hood and its lining. In the end I succeeded but realized this is better to do with a normal round neckline and not a V neck.
So I am not satisfied with how the V of the neck looks (although it doesn't really show when my son wears it ). The orange extra piece still some how didn't totally make up for the missing width making the back imperfect as well. My son is happy with shirt, which is because of the great Lillestoff design. This shirt ruined my planning, I spend more time taking apart seams than sewing them. This makes me unsure if I will be able to finish my last project tomorrow, lets see.
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
