Fleece Hoodie

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Choosing a reversible fabric, using the serger to finish seams making it reversible. On the purple hoodie, I lengthened the skirt by 1 1/2 inches. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This runs big. You may want to size down. I added length to the cotton fleece version. I also tapered the sleeves to the cuff by taking out about a half inch at the underarm and tapering to an inch out total at the wrist. I didn't like the baggy sleeve at the cuff - this was also after sizing down a half size. I am making these for my girls and myself. I am on hoodie number 4 right now. They go together in a breeze. Everyone wants one! I love this pattern even though I have tweaked it to my liking.

Fascinated with your idea and the fabric choice
angeladee answered:
I'm glad you like it! All the females in my family want a hoodie of that fabric. By using a serger on the seam allowances - even if you sew with a machine first, such as the hood, it makes the hoodie reversible. I got the fabric at JoAnn Fabric store. It comes in pink, red, & royal blue, too. I kind of went obsessive on making hoodies! Such a great pattern.
