I decided it was time to get over my zipper phobia and actually give it a bash.  So a made a panda hoodie for dd, fabric is corduroy and I love it.  Did ribbing at sleeves and hem and lined hood with black jersey (it is very silly to try to affix stretch and non-stretch fabrics).  This hoodie is a raglan construction and is a bit low in the back, next time I will try to take it in a bit, although I suppose it doesn't matter too much as you'd always have soemthing on underneath.  Next day, I made a cowboy hoodie for ds.  It is fully lined, the body with jersey (did I learn nothing?!) and the hood with organic flannel.  Next time I will line the whole shebang with flannel, but I didn't want to waste it if it wasn't going to fit.  I wanted it to be reversible and I almost managed it until I got to how to attach the ribbing at hem and sleeve, I just couldn't figure it out and I tried so hard my head started smoking.  Does anyone know how I can do this??!!  Anyway, my son loves it (I know, I almost fell over with shock) and couldn't wait to take pics.  Although he now thinks whenever he gets dressed he should have his picture taken and get a biscuit  Cheesy

These are just adorable! I would love to make something like those for my kids. I love the cowboy fabric especially. Do you mind me asking where you got it? It is so fun! Great job!!

Thanks!  It's a Michael Miller fabric and I think it's called Yippee Cowboy, you should be able to buy it on ebay or etsy I think!

I'm no expert but I would construct the garment with the ribbing fixed to the outer layer then put in the lining and hand stich it in place.

i made a hoodie (also with a michael miller pattern  Cheesy).. but yeah i managed to get it sort of reversible until i messed up the ribbing on the bottom.
my hoodie was made out of three layers though, i had the outside fabric, fleece lining and a shower curtain between both layers.. so in all, 3 layers.. and i managed to get most of it reversible.
i'm not sure how i would do it with just the outside fabric and lining though.. i'm not sure if it would take the same method.

this is mine https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268942.msg3030787#msg3030787

if you want to get it sort of like that, i can try and explain it for you.
but as i said i'm not sure if it would be the same for 2 layers of fabric and not 3.
if you know what i mean..  Huh
