Hello, a newbie to the forums here :)

So, I have this fabric. It seems like your standard cotton blend sweatshirt fabric. The fabric has been dyed, and the colour pattern goes vertical along the grain. However, it would look a lot better if the pattern were horizontal in the finished garment.

I’ve sewn a lot, but I’ve never tried sewing hoodies cross-grain. The fabric stretches both ways, a bit more perpendicular to the grain, like one would expect, but the hoodie would be very roomy anyways.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
