Here are some details about my project:
Category Sewing

What materials did you use? A cotton blend knit. An overlock machine and a sewing machine.

What are you most proud of? I lined the hood. Also I hemmed everything initially with my overlock machine using a three thread overlock stitch using wooly nylon. I liked the finish (nicer than a raw edge, thinner than a turned up hem) but it looked a bit unfinished so I used a triple stitch on my sewing machine and turned the hems under.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you use a serger, be sure to mind the hem allowance because I didn't and I didn't have enough "hood" to overlap in the front :(
