What materials did you use? A vintage knit with Yellow roses from my stash. Think its acrylic and wool

What are you most proud of? That I finaly used that Knit fabric. Allt the roses have waited a long time to transform into a garment. That I added a lining in the hood. I did it because at the reverse side of the fabric the roses looked as yellow and green strips and that was not good inside the hood. With the lining it came out much better I think.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Meg in the Craftsy course sewing With Knits. She is teaching you how to do this Hoodie the easy way. Use some of your time to Make Stitch samples on the fabric you are going to work with. Prepare everything before you start cutting and sewing - then this Hoodie will fly out of the sewing machine, fast and ready to wear. I am wearing it now when I write this!

I think this fabric is called Jacquard jersey, its rather heavy and have a lot of threads from the rose pattern on the wrong side.

Oooops, Made a Full bust adjustment so the front should hang straight down from the bust. As you can see from the photos the first version is a little like an A-line from the bust down. Hope you understand what I mean.
