One of my Dutch Facebook groups baptised September as the hoodie month, meaning that we were challenged to sew a hoodie, any hoodie (woman's, kid's, dog's etc). I saw it as a sign to finally sew the Knight hoodie, but I managed to run out of time again. It is a perfect pattern for the coming Kids Clothes Week though, so maybe next month.
to my procrastinating, I needed a quick hoodie pattern. Last week, I came
across somebody who made a Billie hoodie.
Seeing that I am using the Billie pattern a lot lately and now know
exactly how to make the perfect fit with it it on my kids, I used it to
make my hoodie.
To increase the fun, I decided to make a
reversible hoodie. I cut a centimeter extra seam allowance to accompany
the double layer of fabric. A la Charlie I made a cut at the
neckline. I sewed everything, except for the turning hole, with my
serger. Also the neckline cut was done with the serger and I didn't
stabilize the fabric.
The hood I based on the hood from this one. I made
the hood slightly bigger because the older hoodie's neckline is being pulled
up a bit when the hood is on. Ideally, I would have made the hood even
higher, but I ran out of fabric. Both fabrics are from Lillestoff. I love the bright yellow and orange, I think they are great for fall.
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).
