This shirt didn't turn out quite the way I'd hoped, but the concept was AWESOME Cheesy I've had the navy long sleeve tee for awhile, courtesy of my boyfriend who hates long sleeve tops. The Scooby Doo shirt was a child's size 6 and the red inside the hood and forming the not-visible front pocket are from an industrial truck supply company, both of which were in a pile of free clothes. I went through two Xena episodes just doing that dang hood, which happens to be quite warm. Enough prattle! The shirt:

You can see what I mean about a crappy hood shape Sad Aw well. I don't care what people think about my clothes whilst I WoW. Not like they can see me Tongue


Can anyone recommend me a good hood shape? The one on BurdaStyle for Lydia was junk (sorry to the drafter, but I hated it), and the Rufio Hearts Lil Snotty space-helmet hood doesn't look quite right to me. If I gotta buy a Kwik Sew or something, I'll do it so long as the hood is EXCELLENT. Oh, and LARGE. I hate that most of my female-gendered hoodies have a tiny little hood, preventing me from wearing my hair in a bun. Thnx Cheesy

I think for a good hood that doesn't mold to your face you just need to make sure you're using straight lines for the opening and the top of your head. When I make hooded things I either use a hoodie that i really like for the guideline, or mock up something similar to a medeival pattern I have for a cowl.

Here's a pic of a cowl pattern to show you what I mean Smiley


Good luck!
The first one or two are always the weirdest Smiley

Also, if you're not attaching the bottom of the hood to anything, square it up, too and it won't sit as funny. You may want to extend the front out a little more so you can put a tie or clasp or whatever there, though Smiley

I think my problem is I make the top part too scoopy. Thanks both of you, I'll try a more straight-line version next time. Cheesy
