You will also learn how to sew the zipper. The special feature here: We will work with an interfacing.

The interfacing is covering the zipper same as the seam of the hood and the hem, so that the inside of your jacket looks tidy.

Zip-up Hoodie Sewing Pattern

The hoodie is quite comfortable and designed for sweater or french terry. If you are not sure about the right measurement, its the best to compare with a snugy sweater jacket which is made of the same materials and use the final measurements which you can find in the pattern file. With our pattern "Janice" you can sew the zip-up hoodie for women from sizes DE 32 - 54, UK 6 - 28, US 4 - 26.

And here you can see the inside again: Covered by the interfacing the seam of the hood comes out really nice and tidy. As a beginner you maybe do not recognize them straight away, but as an advanced sewing nerd you will appreciate those little details.
