This tutorial explains how to make a hoodie with a separating zip, ribbed cuffs and (optional) front pockets. The hoodie is fully lined with all seams hidden inside so if you use a reversible zipper you get two hoodies in one! With a generous cut, the hoodie is designed to be worn for up to two years per size, and there are also two length choices within each size for added flexibility based on whether your child is tall or average. It's a perfect garment for layering and for the transitions between seasons, and great fun for combining fabrics! It is suitable for both boys and girls.
The sizes included are 5Y/6Y/7Y/8Y. Fabric requirements are dependant on which size you are making, the width of your fabric and whether or not the print is directional but you should be able to make a hoodie for all sizes with 1.5m of both shell and lining fabric. Additionally, you will require 1/4m of ribbing for the bands and a zipper measuring at least 16in (5y), 17in (6yr), 18in (7Y) and 19in (8Y).
Please note this pattern is a PDF and not a paper pattern, you will need to print and assemble the pieces.
