Inspired by juebejue I shortened the Talea pattern and added a hood to make the perfect autumnal jacket.
My obsession with fleece continues. It’s so easy to work with, cheap, no fraying and has a good stretch which allows for some wiggle room. The hardest part was fitting all the pattern pieces onto a single ikea throw. This time not only did I miss out the pockets, but also the sleeve latches. One day I’ll actually buy enough material to do a pattern properly.
It is a source of frustration that if I wear my hair tied back a normal sized hood won’t reach my forehead, allowing the welsh rain to lash against my face. I therefore made the hood on this jacket extra deep. Hurray for being able to make your own clothes.
