I made this for my mate Paul. I had no idea what to give him for his birthday but then I hit upon the idea - what about a hoodie that looks like formal wear at the front but is actually a hoodie?
So I present to you, the well dressed bastard hoodie!



It's made out of one of my brother's old shirts  (that ripped right next to the buttons, so my Mum chucked it out and I nicked it out of the bin), a $6.50 guy's t shirt, a small $4 girl's t shirt, black fabric and a whole bunch of fleece scraps I have left over from a hoodie I made in year 8 and some fleece remnants.

The back just looks like an ordinary hoodie, like this:


The waistcoat bit buttons, but the placket at the front is actually stitched together..so it looks like the shirt buttons but there is actually a zip there. Much easier!


You can wear any tie with it that you want owing to this great hood slot false collar arrangement.



The cuffs go all around the sleeves...


Also, it has hidden pockets


and a super warm fleece lining!


(I apologise for the slightly woeful quality of those pictures. The real colour of the back is best seen in the first two pics. )

Welll..you asked for it! the HUGE tutorial! Sorry about the rather bold colour scheme..I wanted to make it very clear which bits were which with the hoodie. And I had to draw the pictures all by hand (dies) they took up 5 pages!

Yeah, sure. It'll have to be a combo of photos and drawings though cause I'm not making another one of these in a hurry! Tongue
