Pattern Description:
A classic hoodie pattern
Pattern Sizing:
True to size
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't really follow the pattern instructions. I did reference them once and honestly, if I were a new sewer, I'd probably be frustrated. They do offer step by step photos on their website.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
A basic, traditional hoodie. I do like that it can be made with or without the hood. Also, I like the wide neck area - I don't feel choked by the hoodie part.
Fabric Used:
Sweatshirt fleece. But I would not recommend it for this pattern. Choose a nice heavy-weight knit/jersey.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I ended up omitting the arm bands and the band around the waist because my fabric didn't have any stretch.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes! Yes!

A great independent pattern.

Very nice hoodie and you won't get lost in the woods with bright orange! I know what you mean with using sweatshirt fabric with no stretch. Did that making sweatpants once and it was a wadder. I couldn't sit - LOL!

Thanks! Even though there is no stretch, I have worn it quite a bit!
