My First Hangout Hoodie Dress
I love the Hangout Hoodie by Peekaboo Patterns! More importantly, so does this kid. I wanted to use up this fabric with sprinkles on it. It’s been in the stash forever! It’s a super soft 4 way stretch.
Bella decided immediately that this was a nightgown because of the cuddly fabric and print. I’m okay with that because my goal was to sew a Hangout Hoodie for practice before I cut into my Girl Charlee fabrics I ordered.
Apparently, Bella isn’t the only one who thinks this fabric was born to be jammas. Check out this Pajamas tutorial from HandMadeFrenzy– using the exact same fabric! Her photos do much better justice to the fabric. It really is lovely to touch!
As for the Hangout Hoodie pattern, I am still new to sewing with knits. I had a little trouble with the placket. You can see in the photo above that there’s a tiny bit of stretching at the base. That was due to inexperience on my part, and the two fabrics having different thicknesses and stretchiness. I wonder if a walking foot would’ve helped?
I didn’t seam rip the top stitching and redo it because its pretty tight. I was scared I’d rip into my fabric! I bet my tension was too high.
I had to sew a few v- necks before I got them just right, and I’m sure it will be the same for this placket. I really think my next Hangout Hoodie will be spot on. *you can see my next try here; and yeah…I got better!
Sleeves make great napkins for kids who were born in a barn.
This is the face I get when I remind barn-child that sleeves are in fact, not napkins! (She’s trying not to smile.)
