What materials did you use? Blue microfleece for the hoodie. Thin jersey for the hood lining.

What are you most proud of? The hood lining. It was not part of the pattern, but I figured out how to do it, and it worked out!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used the stretch stitch on my regular sewing machine instead of the zig-zag stitch. I found it looked neater. I also used an overlock stitch to finish the edges of the exposed seams on the hood and hood lining. Otherwise, I used the pattern from the course. The pattern is a VERY large style. I made the XXS and it is still rather loose, not fitted at all. So, if in doubt, go smaller.

You did a wonderful job on this. The lining in the hood finishes it off very nicely :-)

Thanks Lori! And thanks so much for your help with how to line the hood. I still wasn't really sure how to do it, so just sort of followed along logically, how it should work, and it did!

Thank you so much! I was lucky to find the blue leopard print in the EXACT shade I needed.

Oooh, Inspired! I'm liking that compliment very much, thank you! I was lucky to find hood lining in the exact blue as the hoodie.
