Finally, my Avocado Hoodie is finished!
Due to some mistakes on my side, it took much longer than I expected to finish the hoodie. The pattern is great and the descriptions clear.
The pattern comes with several suggestions for variations. As I wanted to insert a short zipper, I had to go with the non-overlapping hood. Custom Style was my source of inspiration for lining the hood. And of course the 'partner-pockets', which had drawn my attention to the Avocado Hoodie in the first place.
As I used a red contrast fabric and a red zipper, I decided to topstitched most seams with a red thread along one side of the seam. Unfortunately, it is hard to see in the photos.
-added a short zipper
-lined the hood
Notes for future hoodies:
-fun pattern with loads of variations
-widen sleeves or add normal sleeves
-add a little length to the body
