At last, it’s cool enough to actually wear this hoodie that I made in the spring! It’s 60 degrees, and I’m off to JoAnn with a fistful of coupons.
This adorable polka dot cotton/poly sweatshirt fabric showed up on FabricMart last March, and I snatched it up. I made the jacket in May, and I’ve resisted the temptation to post it until now.
My inspiration was something I found on Pinterest – apology, I didn’t keep the shop name.
I sewed a couple muslins with pieces of various patterns, and I settled on a combo of the Vogue 9275 jacket and the hood from McCall 7634.
I sewed size Medium in the jacket.
The hood from M7634 size 12 fits perfectly.
While the Vogue jacket is fairly long, I added 2” to length.
I drafted front and back neckline facings so the inside of fabric would not show when I don’t zip it (picky).
And I drafted a cute pocket, 9″h x 8″w, as I’m not a fan of kangaroo pockets.
- My zipper is a #5 plastic jacket zipper from Wawak .
- Also from Wawak, a zipper pull!
- Not sure of the length I needed, I ordered a 36″ zipper and shortened it to fit. These are my jewelry tools, perfect for removing zipper teeth!
- At the bottom, I added a 2″ wide band that pretty much echoes the cuff. The width of the band is only slightly less than the width of the hem, to give it the sweatshirt vibe.
So so cute! I loved wearing it today.
Bye for now! Coco
