When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specifically marked are 1cm wide!
To sew this hoodie you will need a sewing machine and an overlock sewing machine, or alternatively the zigzag stitch on your sewing machine to neaten the raw edges.
Be sure to use a jersey needle and use a stretchy stitch, i.e. if you are sewing with a household sewing machine, you should use either a zigzag stitch or the three-part elastic stitch and then all seam allowances again with a zigzag stitch or another appropriate stitch Neaten so they don't fray. In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something needs to be finished.
Have fun sewing!
You start working on the kangaroo pocket by finishing it all around.
Start with the hood by sewing the inner and outer hood pieces together at the back seam of the hood and in the center front.
Then place the hood pieces together right sides together at the face opening.
In the next step, turn the hood right side out so that the seams point inwards. Make sure that the two layers fit on top of each other.
Then stitch the drawstring 2cm all the way around the face opening. Then sew the seam allowances of the neck hole line together approx. 7mm along the edge. Make sure the buttonholes are on the outer hood.
Finally, you can sew the hood to the neck hole of the top at the correct markings and then overcast it.
Then cut the buttonholes and pull the ribbon through.
Your hoodie David is ready!
