Pattern Description: *taken from Mari's website:This semi-fitted hoodie with princess seam construction. A sweet but not saccharine couple's pattern, the mens pattern was designed to have straighter, more masculine, seaming details than the womens pattern.
Back pockets allow your partner to slip their hand in while walking with an arm around you.
The hoodie features front and optional back pockets that are finished with tabs. Long cuffs have thumb openings to keep your hands warmer as the weather changes. The hood has overlapping and non-overlapping options so you can decide how warm or cool you want your hoodie to be.
0 - 12 and I made the 4 size for a fitted version. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
It did but I've modified this pattern for a more dressier look. Were the instructions easy to follow?
They are easy to follow and I had to follow them for the first one. But I only used them to get the construction right this time. This version has no pockets. The first version did. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the princess seams, the sleeve thumb opening, hoodie and instructions. Fabric Used:
Burn out velour that I bought at the Remnant Warehouse last year.
I've also used a fine black rayon knit to line the body so it's not see through. Lining link Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I've cut the hoodie down in size and it's now a soft collar.
I've kept the front piece as one so there's no horizontal seam.
The sleeves are 2cm shorter as is the body.
I've not included the pockets but have kept the sleeve thumb opening. That's the feature that I love for a winter layer like this. Here are more details about this version. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes because of the design lines. And this is an easy pattern to modify. Conclusion:
This hoodie has some clever features and the instructions are well illustrated.
