Project

Skyline Hoodie

What are you most proud of? Adding the pockets from the pants pattern. I am hoping to also add a front pocket if I can line it up properly so as to enhance the fabric. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Love the triple stretch stitch (except when I had to rip some out), it took a little searching to find it on my Janome. It is really strong and stretchy!

Q&A with SunSwan

robinkmbll44131 asked:
That is great fabric! I like how you used it. Looks like a comfortable hoodie.
SunSwan answered:
Thank you, it is very comfortable and warm.
Joanna Y asked:
Very Nice! Did you use stretch stitch for the whole garment or just in some parts? IS your triple stretch stitch sign same as what the teacher decribed? I couldn't find the same sign that she recommended!
SunSwan answered:
I did use the triple stretch for the whole thing, It takes a little longer because the stitch is quite slow even at full speed but the stretch it gives is worth it. I have a Janome machine so the icon for it is 3 dashed lines. I found it by testing out the stitches I didn't know, on a scrap, until I found it.
Bobbi42 asked:
You've inspired me - I don't often wear hoodies so wasn't planning to make one, but yours is so cuddly and attractive any one would love to wear it! Thanks also for the triple-stitch tip.
SunSwan answered:
Thank you, I hope you can find some equally cozy fabric. You are most welcome for the tip, did you find it on your machine?
