I'm working on the Oliver & S Secret Agent trench coat and I want to add a hood. Here's what I'm planning to do:

Cut and line a hood from another pattern.
Attach it to the jacket between the upper edge and the collar (before attaching the facing).

Does this make sense? Does anyone have an idea for a better way to proceed? Words of caution? Has anyone done this before? Any suggestions are appreciated.

I would use this Green Pepper pattern for the hood and attach it the same way:
