Free Sewing Pattern – The HoodieJanuary 30, 2017 / byFree Designs Admin / Categories : Free Printables, Free Project, Free Sewing Patterns
This is the easiest hoodie pattern and tutorial I could come up with. I have tried my best to simplify the method, but still, I believe it is for the intermediate to the advanced seamstress. As promised we are going to slowly work our way into comfortable workout clothing. This is the first pattern on our “Sew Fit” storyboard. Hoodies are super popular these days. They are very functional and can be worn not only as work-out wear but also on any trip to the store or just around the house. This hoodie is a zippered and slightly fitted but is not supposed to be tight, so please pay attention to the finished garment measurements. It is meant to be worn with a tank top and sweatpants which we will be making later. By far the best fabric that you can use if you live in a cold place is a 12.4-ounce fleece, but do not limit yourself to that option alone. There are many other options. I have provided some suggestions below. I am using jersey knit for this hoodie pattern because I live in the tropics and can’t use fleece which would be way too hot. However, if you are mixing textiles for a hip look (which I encourage you to do) make sure you use the heavier fabric on the body and lighter fabric on the sleeves.
