This pattern is called the Short Sleeve Hoodie Dress. It has an A-line silhouette with short sleeves, hood, and skirt. The Hoodie dress opens in back with hook and loop tape or snaps. The bodice is empire style with a faux wrap crossover in front. This dress is best made with two-way stable knits with 25% to 50% stretch on the cross grain or width of the fabric. The Hong Kong method is used for sewing the bias strips on the edges of the neckline and on the edges of the sleeves. There are two finishing options with this pattern. One option is to use bias strips cut from a contrasting knit fabric and the other option is to use fold-over-elastic to finish the edges. This pattern is best with stable knits that are a medium weight knit. This dress is perfect for the warming months of spring and can be worn with leggings and/or tights.
