August Sewalong: Luka Hoodie

Stacey has done it again! For this month’s sewalong the pattern is the Luka hoodie, an adorable jacket for when the weather turns chilly.

About the Luka Hoodie Pattern:
– This hoodie is designed for comfort and fun. The soft lining will keep your little guy cozy, and the secret pocket helps him hide away his treasures!
– You will need 3 3/8 yards of fabric total for the size 2/3, and 4 yards total for the size 6/7.
– You will also need 3/8″ wide elastic, lightweight interfacing, 3 buttons, a point turner, elastic cording or elastic hair bands (optional).
– This is an advanced level sewing pattern.

Stacey’s adorable green and brown version is just perfect:

 

Her son calls it the “dinosaur” hoodie, and isn’t that just about right? So cute! In her post Stacey gives some tips for a few of the trickier aspects of the pattern, so be sure to check it out.

This pattern calls for the outer fabrics to be made from any light to medium weight woven fabrics like cotton, linen, or baby wale corduroy. The lining should be something soft and cozy without a lot of stretch, such as flannel, fleece, or a stable knit (with 10% stretch or less).

Thanks so much for sewing and reading along with us! Don’t forget to stop by the Sewing for Boys Flickr pool to see what everyone else out there in the world has been making from the book!
