Description

I made this raglan-sleeved hoodie from a wool knit for my husband for Christmas — to replace a hooded sweater he lost a few years ago. I used Simplicity’s vintage 8360 pattern, but made a few adjustments to the 1970s pattern to make it longer and more modern. (I added a band to the bottom hem instead of the drawstring the pattern called for — which would have shortened it considerably. By today’s standards, it would have looked cropped! I also took in the sleeves quite a bit. They were very blousey and the pattern called for an elastic at the wrist. Yuck! I shortened the sleeves and added a cuff instead).

He’s worn it every day since Christmas, so I’d say my foray into sewing for a man went well! If I had another $40 to burn, I would make a matching one for myself. But then we’d be one of those couples…

I blogged about making this along the way at mybeaubaby.blogspot.com

Material Notes

Wool knit with a small stripe. I bought it at Mood in NYC for $20/yard (ouch!). I bought the zipper at SIL Thread and they custom cut it to size.

    Love it! You did a great job of updating the pattern, and a beautiful job of sewing as well.
