I made this hoodie from McCall's pattern #4261.  I really like the way it turned out, but I did make several changesfrom the pattern instructions:

 First, I eliminated the pockets and the yoke pieces.  Since I was using printed fabric I thought these would just complicate the look of the design. 

Also, I cut FOUR hood patterns and made a lined hood - so much more professional! 

I turned the front edges to the INSIDE before inserting the zipper, and I cut two inches off the bottom to shorten it so I needed a 16-inch zipper instead of the 18-inch one that the pattern calls for.

 I have made this pattern at least ten times and it always turns out great.  I've even used t-shirts for the front and back.  You can see more examples on my blog.  I hope you like this pattern and that you will consider sewing up a hoodie of your own!

I just looked at your website and I am really impressed.  What kind of sewing machine do you use?

Wow, I love  that, the fabrics compliment each other so well. I have to get that pattern now *watches list of patterns on wish list rise* or at least when I can afford it Grin

Hi craftsters,

Thanks for the kind comments.  The model is my daughter, Kaitlin. 

I have a Bernina serger model 1300DC and a Bernina Artista 165 sewing machine.  I sew every single day and I love my Berninas!   The hoodie is sewn mostly on the serger with topstitching and zipper on the regular machine.

If you are on a budget (and aren't we all?) be on the lookout for the .99 McCall's pattern sales at JoAnn fabrics.  It seems like they offer this about every other month or so... 

It's really fun to cut the front and back from a t-shirt - come on - give it a try!
