I made the original hoodie about 10 years ago! As one of the first things I ever made, I was quite proud of it, but it was huge and rather dated.
So I chopped it up and with the help of the Idit and Lydia Variation patterns, I adjusted into the styling surfer hoodie it is now!
I used an unwanted pair of pj’s for the binding and cuffs. It really is satisfying to be able to use unwanted clothes to make a loved item.
Giant Red tracksuit top
Awful pj’s for the cuffs and binding
