Hoodie Gone Wild

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am most proud that I was able to use the techniques from the class and sew up this project with more ease than I thought was possible going in, and also that I was able to incorporate some of my own designing into it to make it my own. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, and don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.

What you will need

  • Interlock Knit
  • Cotton Lycra Knit
  • serger thread and regular thread
  • and a dual-separating parka zipper

Q&A with Lizzy Beth

Scheri Manson asked:
Fabulous florals. Pretty design for a cute summer coat.
Lizzy Beth answered:
Thank you Scheri. This fabric just called my name when I saw it, and I thought this project would be just perfect for it :-)
TanjaH asked:
Really pretty. Turning the hoodie into a jacket is a good idea.
Lizzy Beth answered:
Thank you TanjaH. It was a little daunting at first trying to figure out how to change the pattern to make it work, but I think it is totally worth it.
Zanna asked:
Love the fabric. Is the fabric double-sided, or did you line it?
Lizzy Beth answered:
Thank you Zanna. The fabric is not double-sided. It is just a thick interlock - the hood is the only part that is lined.
mubba0mine asked:
I really like this and the hood is lovely. It really sets it off. This would make up as a nice dressing gown if it was made in fleece or even cotton for the warmer days. Well done you.
Lizzy Beth answered:
Thank you mubba0mine. I have some of each fabric left. I will have to think about your suggestion - it is a good one :-)
OriginalRed asked:
So cute! I love the interesting and unexpected fabric. The hood lining really goes nicely and adds to the design. You will have fun wearing this.
Lizzy Beth answered:
Thank you OriginalRed. I am looking forward to some warmer weather, so that I can wear it :-)
