The Jacqueline Hoodie

Jacqueline Hoodie PDF Pattern

Who loves a good hoodie? I recently made up the new Jacqueline Hoodie from Itch to Stitch. We’re finally rolling into warm weather so I made a lighter version perfect for summer evenings, and grabbing as a just-in-case out the door.

Jacqueline Hoodie PDF patternI had this stripe in my stash waiting for a home and I thought the colors were more summery than I tend to go. Then I started cutting. The beauty of this hoodie is the seaming gives you a great fit. The downside is that is a LOT of matching stripes. Whewwwww.

Jacqueline Hoodie PDF patternBecause I went with the stripe, which was fairly busy, I cut out the extra detail options in the pattern. The pattern comes with the options for welt pockets, epaulettes, and a host of decorative buttons for the front. I love my quick sew version, but I’m excited to make a fully loaded one in a ponte for the winter.

Jacqueline Hoodie PDF patternWhile I would deem this an intermediate sew the pattern walks you through each step carefully and clearly. If you were a confident beginner looking for a push this would be great. The separating zipper is also an easy installation if you are looking to conquer a zipper installation on your sewing must do list!

My favorite part is the hood. It’s nice a deep with out being sloppy, and the finishing technique on in yields a really professional result.

Looking for motivation to sew for yourself? It’s Me-Made-May! I’ve been having a great time following along with sewers who are committed to wearing at least one me-made item each day in May. I’m playing along on instagram. You can find me HERE.

    There is a lot of stripe matching, but you did a beautiful job of it!

    I love the colors. Looks so much like the one I just made from an Ottobre magazine. I am loving the style.

    The only think I might change now that I’ve worn it a little is adding a cuff to the bottom hem like yours has. It seems like the bottom hem is stretching out a little.
