Okay, so this is just something I'm not positive about. I'm gonna make myself a hoodie and I was thinking about adding a lining, for warmth. I've done a project where I used fleece as a lining and for that, I just zigzagged the outer fabric and the fleece together, and then put the piece together normally (treating the fleece side as the wrong side). Is it the same basic concept with a hoodie? Also, does anyone have any recommendations for a good lining fabric? I want something kinda wooly.

I have a great hoodie that I bought, but it has a sweatshirt knit outer and is lined in the front, back and hood with short pile faux fur. The arms are lined with a different knit. It's very warm!

Fabricmart has genuine sherpa skins in stock, they're having a sale this weekend. I have a few winter coats with lined hoods and they are attached with snaps or buttons around the rim for removability.

mercymercy, Lining the hoodie itself will be relatively easy. Just cut the pattern pieces of the body in your lining fabric and sew it separately as in a jacket pattern. I'd not do the sleeves in a wooly/fleecy fabric. Do you want to line the hood also? If so, I'd sew the hood and lining together except for the neckline, then sandwich the neckline between the hood/lining unit and stitch. Would it help to follow the instructions for attaching a collar?

This is a great idea and I hope to see it!!

Hmm, I think I've done something like that before now that I think about it. What fabric do you recommend using for the lining? And if it comes together nicely I will definitely consider posting pictures!

What about a brushed flannel? It would be warm, and easier to sew than a thick textured fabric. What type of fabric are you using for the hoodie itself?
