Chillax in this easy-to-make, fabulous-to-wear
hoodie, designed for medium-weight knits like
ponte, French terry, fleece, firm sweater knits
sweatshirting, velour, boucle or double knits.
Unlined, relaxed fit, open front hoodie has
bust darts cleverly rotated into the shoulder
seams for a neat fit. Hoodie features optional
(but recommended!) patch pockets, plus rib
or self-fabric trimmed full-length three-piece
sleeves & hemline, with a rounded front hem.
Hoodie has a center back seam & two-piece
hood; front can be worn open (wrong side of
your fabric will show) or closed with snaps.
This great piece is a year-round style; make
it in lightweight knits for cool summer nights,
or try it in cozier knits for chilly weather. It’s
the perfect semi-casual top layer to soften a
tailored pants or skirt & sweater look, or try
wearing one in a luxe knit to dress up your
casual sweatpant-and-T-shirt outfits. This
wardrobe essential will also be perfect for
travel, uncertain weather, or just chillaxing...
Sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 will need around 2 ½ yards
or 230cm fabric; sizes18-20-22-24-26 will need
around 3 yards or 275 cm fabric.
If you want to interface and/or line your patch pockets,
add a scrap of each, about 10” x 20” or 25cm x 50cm;
if you’d like to use snaps to close your hoodie,
you’ll need a pair of large ones-we used 1” or 2.5cm
All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.
This jacket is an easy sew and looks great on. There is a lot of ease, so consider sizing down like I did. My muslin was made out of a spongy knit that was easy to work with. The three piece sleeve is an interesting design feature.
I will make one in a knit for wearing out and I am considering making one as a jacket to go with pjs.
Easy assembly - love the one piece hood and front! Great instructions, good illustrations and awesome garment when you're all done sewing. My fabric had no stretch to it so the front band gave me a little bit of a fit, and I would suggest your fabric have at least an itty bitty stretch to it. Love the pockets too. Very comfy hoodie!
For a stylish and comfortable garment, this one is very easy to put together. The 3 piece sleeve looks great and the whole hoodie is cozy and wonderful. I am on my 3rd one.
Made the hoodie out of luxe fleece for my 15 year old granddaughter. she loved it!
