The Obnoxious Hoodie

This still needs A LOT of work! Any comments would be extremely helpful. I wanted to create a top that was layered over itself many times, and an obnoxiously large hood. It zips up on the side. It still needs sleeves, lining, and maybe a solid fabric to tone it down. I didn’t use a pattern; I just folded fabric over a model of my torso to see how it would hang, and went from there.

Material Notes

African print cotton, 14 inch zipper





My mom, for helping me make the model.

My dog. She is always approving, no matter what I sew :)

    Wow, this looks super cool. Are the sleeves going to be layered, too? If not, I think it would look good with baggy sleves that tapered at the wrists. Just to tone down the layers, and it would match the hood. :) Maybe. Depends on the look you’re going for.

    Can’t wait to see the result!

    I think it looks really cool! I know where I come from a lot of girls would wear this. Keep up the good work!

    I agree with Polychromatin. It looks good now and suits you well. Sleeves might make it all a bit much. If you want to go for sleeves anyway, I’d recommend doing really simple ones, in a plain colour that matches your fabric (you could try jersey ones, maybe use the Lydia sleeves for that)

    Wow, I really like it. Great that you did this without a pattern and really nice t see you smile ;) I have no idea what to change, because I really like it the way it is (without sleeves)
