I’ve made several different hoodie patterns, but this one is now my favorite! It’s definitely oversized, but I think that’s necessary to be able to easily pull it over her head - and we all love our hoodies oversized anyway! I used a crew neck sweatshirt for fabric, reusing the neck binding and waist trim for sleeves and waist. Good instructions make this an easy pattern for less experienced sewers.
I loved using this pattern to create hoodies for my daughter's 18" dolls I upcycled some of her own outgrown hoodies for the fabric and ribbing and was able to use featured stripes etc. She likes the pullover design as she prefers her own clothes like that! They are nice and easy to put on and off for the dolls and make a warm snuggly top layer for a casual outfit. I haven't used the pants pattern yet.
The pattern was easy to use. The instructions were very clear. My granddaughter was thrilled with the finished product and was sending pictures to her friends
Love it and have made several. I have embroidered on the front of them. Is there any way a 13" pattern can be made, I tried adjusting it for Galoob Baby Face and made one but it would be nice to have the actual pattern.
There are two kind of tricky spots for a self-taught sewist: the centering and positioning of the front pocket (I don't know how many times I sewed the wrong edges shut) and the placement of the hood string when closing the hood..through trial and error I figured it out. Once the bulb went on it was easy!
