When you’re going ‘oversized’, it’s time to go big or go home!
Make yourself a luxuriously oversized hoodie in a drape-y knit
velour, ponte, sweatshirting, heavy T-shirting, a firm sweater
knit or a thin fleece, but also think about a drape-y woven with
a stretchy knit for the sleeves, cuffs and optional pocket trim.
Oversized, un-fitted hoodie has a curved front & back yoke
neckline, two-piece hood and a center front separating zipper.
Choose from a long length version with patch pockets, or a
shorter, gatheredversion. Both versions have a center back seam,
deep stitched hem and front facing, plus full lengthstretch knit
sleeves and cuffs; sleeves start around the elbow!
Top-stitching works on these of course.
You just know you can’t wait to be snuggling up in one of these

oh-so-comfy hoodies will add just the right amount of slouchy-sporty
glamour to any jeans-and-T outfit for a super-cool casual look.

This jacket has a ton of ease. I made it in fleece and I love it. It is large,large, large. For the second one, I sized down 2 sizes and I lengthened it. I made that one out of plush terrycloth towels I bought at IKEA, and it works as a robe. It was still roomy enough as a robe. I wore it on a ski weekend with friends and they all made orders for their own.
Now for the gist of the pattern: it is easy, the directions are spot on. Honestly, anyone but a very beginner could make this without the instructions. Pieces are well drafted and all the notches line up. This is an easy make. I skipped the muslin simply because I knew it had tons of ease (which it does).
