So Phoenix drew a hoodie the other day. It was so awesome I decided to make it. I particularly liked the “wings” on the hood – she sketched a detail shot and everything:
So here’s what I came up with:
OH SNAP so soft. Actually the hoodie is very lightweight – almost tissue-tee weight. This of course made tiger-stripe appliques a really fun challenge. By that I mean, lots of angry tears.
The floral was a very lightweight cotton recently gifted to me by a local alterationist who I adore. I wanted something feminine and homey to contrast with the bold cosplay elements of the piece. The back:
Up close of the “wings” – with Phee’s little dots in there for good measure:
The horn – the same European Linen I used for the recent slacks sew-a-long:
And my favorite detail – the hidden side-seam pockets at the front side panel. Very cozy, only enough room to warm a hand, very lightweight:

And a closeup of a happy hoodie recipient!
