Description

This is a regular hoodie I had draped. I chose a fun baby blue sweatshirt fleece and some fun wide print yellow lace. The only zipper I had at the time was a black one but some say it “adds” to the final look. I also used the same fleece for the finish on the sleeves, hood, and hem.

Material Notes

about 2 yards of sweatshirt fleece, & contrasting lace (the lace can be stretch or non-stretch, but remember if the lace is stretchy becareful not to chose one that may pill). One 12"zipper, optional draw string or lace ribbon, about a yard long or shorter(personal preferance) & contrasting threads or matching thread

    The lace is a non-stretch lace and I just basted the lace over the fleece where i knew t would shift during constrruction. The two don’t shift inbetween eachother, and sosme people think the lace looks screen printed on at first glance. thanks for the comment

    Is the lace a stretch or not? If not, did you bond it to the sweatshirt fabric? They look as if they don’t shift, this is good.
