  1. I think, if they decide to riot in Croydon again, this sort of hoodie would make them look much less scary.
    I have two hoodies which I only wear on my way to Zumba and yoga and I only like the ones with zips so that you can show you have something much more feminine and flattering on underneath.
    As you know, I hate camping but, if by some quirk of fate like I have been kidnapped and brainwashed by an evil Scoutmaster and ended up bound for a tent in England, I will reach for this pattern. πŸ˜‰

    • Ha ha! Well, I never thought I’d make a hoodie for myself, so you never know! That’s probably the reason I put a zip in the pattern, too, otherwise I’d be an even rounder, shapeless blob:)


  2. I think it turned out quite cute. I liked everything about it. πŸ™‚

  4. Hoodies are my favorite piece of clothing. I love hoodies and I wear them all the time. I love yours. You did a fabulous job on it as usual. Your expression is priceless. When the wind is blowing you will love yours too. πŸ˜€

    • That’s interesting to hear. I appreciate their comfort value, just not convinced they’re the most flattering or feminine of garments. Would love to be proved wrong! Don’t get me wrong – I will be extremely grateful for it as bad weather is forecast for our camping trip:(


  5. Great adaptations, Sheila, and well-chosen fabric. Hope you have much good weather and lots of fun camping!

  8. It is pretty, the fabric really works. πŸ™‚ You look stunning, and will keep warm and dry for sure.
    I do have hooded jackets, and they are very useful for taking the dog out late at night during winter. I prefer a cute hat or beanie mostly.
    Take care and enjoy. πŸ™‚

  9. You did a lovely job and no one will confuse you for a rioting thug in that – very feminine! Thanks for all the tips with zips, button holes etc. I’ve stored them away for future reference πŸ™‚

  10. Lovely job and not at all thuggish. I wear one to walk HRH and can be found in one often not being thuggish. Now stop pulling that face or the wind will change and you’ll get stuck like it πŸ˜‰

  11. I think it looks great! Adding a zip sounds so easy and will make such a difference to the wearability of your hoodie.

  12. It looks great! I got scared when you had on the hood only. But the finished product looks great. I love the tape on the cord trick.

  13. I agree that they do little to flatter the figure, but they are warm, cozy and practical, especially for camping and yours is gorgeous. Your photo here cracked me up. I clicked over to Minerva and left comments there. I’m glad the American Girl gets a matching top. Someone will be happy!


  14. I think it turned out great! I hope you have a lovely time camping and the sun shines for you πŸ™‚


  15. Oh I’m late to the party….but I love this! It looks like the hood stays nice and tight to keep the icy wind out. And I must say, your expression has “softened” just a bit with the completion. πŸ˜‰ Enjoy your camping in comfort!

  17. You are rocking the hoodie! And it’ll help keep,the midgies away on an evening when you’re sat outside with a glass of vino on the balmy summer evenings we often get (I’m an eternal optimist!) 😎
