Redesigning a hood for a hoodie jacket.

Redesigning a hood for a hoodie jacket.

Making another muslin (wearable), more curved in the top panel at the neckline closer to what I will be using in the final build.

A 4″ accent strip at the top of hood for a different look for the traditional hoodie hood.

It is a bit oversized at the neckline, not sure which jacket I will be using for the body of the jacket.

Construction was with a serger, then topstitched on a sewing machine with the Honeycomb decorative stitch.

It is oversized, not sure which jacket it will be attached to.

A plus for me, I got to use some animal print today, now I am in a better mood. Animal prints are my all-time favorite pattern on cloth. I try to tastefully add it to garments. But sometimes you have to go bold!

The difference in the neckline.  The first one (brown/black) was 4" front to back, the animal print, flares at the neck line to match the deign of jacket body.
