The Clio Hoodie is designed for a height of 5’6” (167.6cm). It has a length that falls to about the Full Hip in the front and it’s about 1” longer in the back. The sleeves have extra long cuffs which can be flipped up, so they are wrist length, or left long, giving you a 2 1/2” longer sleeve. The dolman sleeves make the hoodie comfortable and an easy sew. You can choose to add a drawstring to the hood and pockets to the front seams.
Techniques Involved: Sewing a knit band, topstitching, sewing in a zipper, finishing seams with bias tape(optional), sewing a lined hood, adding a drawstring(optional), sewing seam pockets(optional), and hemming.
All files are PDF files that can be printed at home on Letter or A4 sized paper. Each pattern includes one file for the pattern and print-at-home pieces, and another file containing the copy shop A0 (33.1″ wide) pattern pieces. We’ve placed the pattern pieces on individual layers so you can print only the size(s) you need, saving you on paper and ink.
This pattern is designed for heavy weight knit fabric with 10% stretch or more. Polyester or Cotton Fleece, Sweatshirt Knit, and Stretch Denim are all good choices. For the Hood Lining and Pocket you will want a lighter weight fabric to decrease bulk and weight. If adding a drawstring, you’ll need medium weight fusible interfacing.
To bind the raw edge of the Front, you’ll need either 1” wide fold over elastic of bias tape.
