Super easy hoody & sweatshirt pattern for beginners - which can also be lengthened to a dress.

Smart casual, this hoody can be be made from warm winter knit or a light cotton weave for summer fashion. Full length or cropped this pattern is extremely versatile.

Unleash your creative and make your hoody unique by embellishing it, or use fabric a little "out of the ordinary".   Line the hood with a contrasting fabric or add a screen printed image.  Ideas for embellishing are on our Pinterest Page. Our grey hoody has been embellished with an old crochet table cloth bought from a second hand shop and we love it. We have also sewn samples from crushed velvet and an old cotton sheet (fantastic for summer).

STYLE OPTIONS
STYLE A - HOODY
STYLE B - SWEATSHIRT
Full length or cropped -Elasticated cuffs or stretch knit - Warm knit and/or fleece fabric or a totally different look in lightweight wovens - Contrast sleeves, hood linings and cuffs - and it looks great embellished

This pattern is extremely versatile, made with or without the hood, winter or summer weight fabric, and can be easily lengthened to a dress or cropped short.

FABRIC

Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing it on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.

WINTER WEIGHT:  
Heavy knits like fleece cotton*, polar fleece, merino wool and wool mixes (for a winter hoody)
Our grey sample is made up in cotton sweat shirting and embellished with a second-hand crochet table cloth, the knit hoody was sewn from a polyester/acrylic knit.

SUMMER WEIGHT:
You may like to use a cotton or lightweight fabric to make a summer style hoody. This looks good cropped at the waist with a drawstring gather. Cotton, linens and cotton/polyester/rayon mixes are great for this but note that you might like to choose a larger pattern size than normal as woven fabrics do not stretch. Click the "Style Options" tab to learn more about the pattern variations.

The pink Crop Hoody & the green summer weight full length hoody have been made from sheets we found at the second hand store. 

Notes for woven fabric:
If you are planning to make the hoody in a summer weight fabric (like woven cotton) then you need to be mindful that a woven fabric does not stretch. There ware 2 ways to address this:
(a) you can cut out your bodice pieces slightly larger, by adding 1cm (3/8") more to the centre front and centre back or,
(b) use a pattern one size bigger than you normally would, and adjust the sleeve and body length to fit when hemming.

*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. Some fabrics will not shrink but 100% cotton, linen and rayon are almost guaranteed to shrink. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build up that may have occurred during printing anyway.

DIFFICULTY

Suitable for Beginners. Able to sew a curved seam. This hoody is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger).

    Nice modern sweatshirt

    Really pleased with the sweatshirt I made in French Terry. It has a nice boxy feel. I did shorten the sleeves a bit as seemed very long and a shame as I was stripe matching to my ribbing! I’ll definitely make again and will have a go at the hoody. I suspect this will be a well used pattern.

    Excellent patterns!

    I have started sewing again after quite a long break! I have tried a few of these patterns and they are great, easy to follow and fit really well. The variations mean I will definitely sew multiples - so glad I found The Sewing Revival!
