Great job.  How did you attach the ears? (is it a two piece hood, slits, or are they just sewn o nthe top?)

That is one cute puppy...

adorable!  did you use a pattern, or just make your own?

I did use a pattern but I altered it slightly to make it the way I wanted it...  I used Simplicity 5378  It has no lining, no ears, and the end of the sleeves was supposed to have elastic but I didn't bother putting it in...  that way I can turn the jacket sleeve up and it looks like a cuff or leave it down for length...

That is so cute!  Smiley

So, this is your first experience with lining? Any tips for those of us who have never tried?

Well, it's not my first time using lining... but it is my first time that it has been a great success...  I did my own thing instead of following instructions of others...  It helps to understand what you are doing instead of being lead blindly...

Not great at explaining things, but maybe this will help...  making a lining is like making a secong hoodie.  you make the outer part of the hoodie, aswell as the inner part of the lining completely (well nearly complete,,, dont do any finishes on the bottom of the jacket, don't hem the hood or sew on the zipper as yet... you can baste it on to the outer fabric as normal)

After you have made the outer fabric and the lining.... put the right sides together and pin together along the zipper and hood... it will make a nice long line to sew...

Flip the fabric over and you should have the start of a lined hoodie....  next pull the sleeves to the inside of the hoodie....  make sure the seams at the arm hole is aligned...  Now hem the end of the sleeve.  I made it easier by cuting the lining an inch to an inch and a quarter shorter... so that I'd have a guide to fold over the fabric and have a flushed straight line for the hem... (I always would mess up there)   Tuck under another 1/4 inch and sew....

After doing the sleeves... fold back over the hoodie so that you see the wrong sides of the fabric again....  pin together the bottom of the hoodie leaving a 5-6 inch space in the middle...  Sew together and flip the hoodie over pushing it through the space that you didnt sew... pin the unsewn area together and sew a straight line from end to end... and voila!! lined hoodie!!!

Yikes... i really do hope you understand this...
