....And finally, I post pics of my version of the kimono inspired hoodie.  If you haven't seen madpimp's glorious original (and tutorial) check it out: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177160.0.  Seriously, that girl has skills!

This hoodie (wonky as it is) was in the presence of Martha Stewart last week at her first ever sewing show.  All audience members had to bring a sewn item in and some were featured during the show.  I got to sit in the front row and valiantly waved my hoodie whenever they prompted us to hold up our projects.  Alas, I sat in front of the kitchen and the cameras were all poised at the other end of the set the whole time.  My backside did make it on camera briefly....the camera does really add 10 lbs or else I never realized how huge my butt really is Grin.

Anywho, I used the back shirt pattern piece from Wendy Mullen's Sew You book for the back and both front pieces.  It worked for the most part except according to the pattern I am a large but the thing turned out at least 3 sizes too big.  I took it in a million times and now the right shoulder is a little goofy.  Also, I learned how to use my serger through this project which means I wish I could go back and fix the things I didn't know in the beginning.  I added ribbon ties instead of a zipper and added a few inches to the sleeve cuffs so they would bell out.

My mom's been putting off pre-washing the fabric for my hood for a good month now  Roll Eyes
I could do it myself, but I don't know what setting she did the rest of my hoodie in. I'm afraid I'll screw it up! XD
