(ed. – for my in-depth review of the television show “Sea Hunt” – including .gifs and ringtones – please see this thread on B-movie BFFs!)
That’s right. Like a total nerd I made myself a “Sea Hunt” hoodie. They said I wouldn’t do it ( - or maybe they said, “who cares!”). But I did it. Because “Sea Hunt” is really really awesome and if you don’t see how, I will fight you. Oh also I am going to be watching and reviewing ALL 155 EPISODES OF THE SERIES. And I’ll be posting here. You heard.
Anyway here’s the hoodie. And the first episode of “Sea Hunt” – “Sixty Feet Below” – reviewed in the comments.
Understitching the hood lining:
Appliqueing the “athletic stripes” on the sleeve. P.S. go ahead and check my knit grain – it is perfect.
Seam finishes: some serge-finishing (the horizontal seam you see here), some zig zag, and some triple-stitch. The finish depends on the seam and how it needs to perform.
The inside of the pocket binding:
The inside of the bottom band – zig-zag finish, then another zig-zag 1/4″ and a 1/8″ trim after that:
Pocket – perfect on-grain placement; pocket band lines up with princess-seamed bodice:
Home-“screenprinted” (i.e. freezer paper stencil) “Sea Hunt” logo:
And the best bit – cuffs with thumbholes:
By the way. YES, I have had a few gentlemen of-an-older-age in the grocery store, in the parking lot, squint confusingly at my hoodie. It’s like they know what the reference is but they can’t quite see how it’s happening.
