01/2017 #103 Hoodie

Added Jul 9, 2019

La Crosse, Wisco...






I read a few reviews on this hoodie before I made it. They all stated it was large and to size down. So I did and it still turned out way big.

Size: My measurements at the time put me in size 42 bust/waist and 46 hip. I sewed up a size 40 bust/waist and 42 hip. This hoodie should be advertised as oversized. (I skipped the kangaroo front pocket because it went over my panel design).

Instructions: I glanced at them here and there. They were ok for the most part. You need prior knowledge of how to put a hoodie together before tackling this project.

Thoughts: I know it can be hard to tell in the pictures, but I feel like I’m drowning in it and it feels very frumpy. When a shirt matches my hips I lose my waist and it makes me look 2x larger than I am. I love the style of the pattern and my fabric choices, so I’m a bit sad it is too large. I cannot take any more off the sides because I will lose most of the design there. I don’t think I’ll attempt this pattern again. The good news is that I bought a bunch of these wildlife panels in a sale – so I think I have another raccoon for a different pattern.
