Pattern Drafting with Knits, Part 2: make your own hoodie!

PatternDrafting_1200x1200_2last week we launched Part 1 of my newest online workshop for Creativebug, Pattern Drafting with Knits, and i showed you how to use your Master Pattern to make a more fitted knit empire waist dress. today, Part 2 is live, and i’ll be teaching you how to draft your own custom-fit hoodie! i don’t know about you, but hooded sweatshirts are a staple in my wardrobe. i must admit though, i had never made one myself before! i’m pretty happy at how my sample came out (i even made the crazy choice of using stripes for my first attempt) and have been living in it ever since getting it back from the photo shoot.

PatternDrafting_1920x1080_1i’ll also show you more style variations, all originating from that same shift dress pattern. some of these use the pattern with the ease removed, and some have the additional positive ease we add for the hoodie. the possibilities are really infinite!
