I have two MS paint drawings of Borg sweatshirts I wanted to make. I finished one and I am loving it to death. I didn't use a pattern, just cut and sewed. I might add interfacing to the collar so it stands up better instead of slouching a lot. I also wanted to add "Species 5618" to the back but ... It's annoying so I won't do it for a while lol. Took me months on and off to finish it. There are a couple things that are bad with it but overall I think it looks good.

This was also the first time I lined a hood. I think it turned out really nice and I love the inside fabric. It makes the hood look really good. I just need to sew along the edges a bit more carefully so it's straight lol. Enjoy! C&C always welcome.

Borg!  You can't really go wrong with Trek crafts in my book, but it's super cute and looks comfortable.  Awesome!

I love the design of the hoodie, especially the button collar -- and without a pattern!  Great work!

Thanks everyone! And it is VERY comfortable. It's a light sweatshirt too so I can wear it when it's cold out or super cold out with another jacket over it as well. I also agree, you can never go wrong with Trek crafts! I plan on making another hoodie for my friend but centered around Vulcans.

Not sure if this will help but this is what I put together before / while making this. I added notes while sewing it to make sure I didn't mess up. I originally wanted it black but I only had grey jersey knit and I wanted to use it. I think it looks just fine either way. I also changed a few things. Instead of using the green fabric to make "bias tape" around the hood I just used a piece of grey, I thought with the lining being green it would be too much. I also only used two buttons rather than four, and I think it turned out really well.

Link here since my picture got resized on this thread somehow.
