Hoodie dresses

June 19, 2018

A whole year ago I made my first hoodie dress, and it has proved to be an absolute wardrobe staple. My original dress was made with the ‘Hide Away Hoodie’ pattern from an Ottobre magazine, which became my starting point for making a similar dress for my friend Jody.

She liked her first dress so much, she asked me for another in black!

I had enough leftovers of fabric to make her a mini pencil skirt, too!

And then I made another hoodie dress for my friend Carrie, for her birthday, this one in a lightweight loop-backed sweater knit.

It’s the ultimate cosy dress! I would like to add a contrast hood lining to my next version, inspired by the Stella Hoodie by Tilly and the Buttons.

    Those are fabulous! I made up a sweatshirt dress (Paprika Patterns Jasper Dress) this winter, and it was absolutely wonderful to have.
