DIY nautical hooded jacket

When I’ve sewn the girls dress with the school supplies I found remains of french terry fabric I used for a hooded jacket. Not enough for another jacket for myself, but enough for a little girls hooded sweat jacket.

I’ve made 6,7 or 8 hooded jackets for myself but this small jackets are way more complicated hehe

I started with an very easy jacket, Nothing special! I used the dress fabric as lining for the hood.

Here my first jacket for Miss M πŸ™‚

My next jacket has been more elaborated πŸ˜€

I used this jacket to learn how to applique

Remember the maritime dress with the paper boats?

Burda dress 01.

I had more than enough fabric left overΒ  when the dress has been done.

First I searched the net for drawings of a paper boat. I printed my found in different sizes and sewn it on the back of my jacket

The front got a paper boat too. This time with Miss M’s initials. I also made piping with the lining fabric

For lining the hood and the front I used the dress fabric. For the back lining I took the pocket fabric

Back of the jacket.

Unfortunality I put the paper boats a little to high on the back. The hood is covering part of the boats 😦
