My attempt at sewing:
FRONT

BACK


Step by Step Guide
I DID NOT WANT THIS HOODIE TO HAVE KITTY EARS SO I MADE A FEW CHANGES, THE ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT VERY CLEAR SO I HAVE MADE A PHOTO GUIDE
1) cut all pieces from fabric
2) sew the two back hoodie pieces together along the middle lines

3) sew the two front pieces together along the top seam

4) sew back hoodie pieces to front hoodie pieces

5) hem front of hoodie *in retrospect I would do this at the end*

6) decorate front and back of hoodie if required

7) hem sleeve cuffs, front and bottom of hoodie body pieces *in retrospect I would only hem the sleeve cuffs now, and hem the bottom and front edges of the hoodie at the end

8 ) sew hoodie front pieces to hoodie back pieces along shoulder seams

9) sew sleeves in place (this was very difficult)

10) sew hood to hoodie (they didnt match up Sad hood was too big so I added a couple of pleats in the back and then there were long pieces left over at the front of the hood)

11) sew along the side seams and sleeves

*in retrospect I would NOW sew the front and bottom hem lines*


Review:
The pattern does not include seam allowance so add your own
This pattern was difficult, the sleeves were hard to fit in place
The hood appears too big for the body, it does not match up at the side seams and there was extra fabric left at the front (does the hood maybe already have seam allowance? i don;t know - will have to wait til I can try it on my doll to see how it fits


Adaptations:
the original instructions were not very clear so I made my own
I used the extra fabric left over from the hood being too long to make an under chin strap


*** I will come back and review it for fit once I receive my doll, and add more pictures of her wearing it***

I'm waiting for her to arrive Smiley

I couldn't afford a real Blythe Sad or infact justify spending that much money on a doll right now

so I got a clone Blybe on ebay which I'm planning on customising

she still needs a name
