Add a Hood to any dress of yours
Buying a hoodie turns out to be mighty expensive. What if you can turn any tshirt of yours into a hoodie by making this hood with scraps you have in your fabric stash and stitch it to your clothes. Instant Hoodie – yay.If you want a full on hooded scarf with pockets checkout this tutorial.
Make the pattern first- mark it directly on the fabric
When cutting the fabric, mark the pattern on folded fabric so that you get mirror images. If you are not , and If you are marking the pieces individually do remember to mark the pattern left and right.
How to sew the hood
Cut out the 2 hood pattern pieces and 2 lining pieces
Sew up the top curved portion of the outer fabric right sides together and then the lining pieces right sides together
Keep the outer fabric an lining hoods right sides together. I have kept outer hood right side out inside the lining hood which is wrong side out. Stitch them together along the front and bottom edge leaving a 2 inch opening
Turn the hood right side out through the opening you have left open. Stitch the opening closed
Join this hood to any dress you have ( which has a high neckline ofcourse) and you have a quick hoodie. Remember to pin from the center of the back neckline.
