Flip this Pattern- Hangout Hoodie

FranceSuzanne is running a series called Flip This Pattern.  This month the pattern being flipped is the Hangout Hoodie. (affiliate link) I made a couple of these for the kids in the early fall and thought it might be fun to try flipping it and doing something  a little different.  I made this version for M and as we are entering the winter I wanted to make it a little warmer so I added a lining and fur to the hood.

Hangout Hoodie Flip

I used a medium weight knit for the outside and a lighter weight knit for the lining.  Because  M is very insistent on wearing pink these days, that is the main color.  The lining is my favorite.  It has bright green and pink orange and yellow sheep on it.  I bought an extra large cut because I knew I would need to make a couple of things from it.

I changed the neckline and made a modified tab, bring the lining fabric out in the tab.  Because this knit is not very stretchy I will just leave the neckline open to make going over M’s head a little easier.   Just for a little fun I thought I would add fur to the hood lining.  It’s very soft and has a curly look to it.  In keeping with the sheep in the lining . I used the same method in our Adding a Hood tutorial to line this hood. It’s an easy addition.

I up sized one size because of the lining and I did not want it to fit too tight.  I used a double needle when hemming the sleeves.  This has become my favorite hemming stitch on knits.  We won’t see the kids until the Thanksgiving weekend so fingers crossed that, number one she LIKES it and number two, it fits!

My ongoing challenge, sewing for little bodies that I don’t have easy access to!  Are you getting ready to do some holiday sewing? Have you made your fabric choices yet?  Do you have any winter sewing started?

Happy Sewing,




  1. I love your sheep fabric! It would be difficult to make without fittings! I bet it helps that Rachel knows how to measure them for you. I’m wondering….

    When she comes down to visit, does she raid your fabric? If my mom sewed, I’d totally shop her stash:)

    I need to post my hangout hoodie!!

  3. That sheep fabric is so cute! The hoodie looks great. The fur added to the hood is a fun touch!

    I’m starting to work on Christmas/winter sewing. It seems like the kids keep adding regular every day stuff to my sewing list though. I need to hunker down and start seriously sewing!;)

  4. Looks very soft, snuggly, and fun {very child-approved kind of sewing}!
