Unlucky For Some




Before Christmas I just had time to make my annual camping hoody.  It should come as no surprise that for the 13th time I made Jalie 2795 again.   By now I could probably make this pattern in my sleep!  The fabric I chose was a gorgeous 100% cotton soft quality brushed cotton sweatshirting that I have been keen  to use for quite some time.  I originally bought 8 metres of it when making nappies for a living so it has been in my stash since then.  Luckily I also managed to pick up some perfectly matching ribbing in my travels at some point as well.


Just like my last version, I added a facing to the front which looks a lot neater when the zipper is down.  I then lined the hood with some white interlock.


As it happens, I really didn't need the hoody!  It did get a little cool occasionally outside after dark but over the two and a half weeks of camping it actually didn't rain once!

  2. 13 times, I'm not sure that I can comprehend that number, you will probably just whip this up in no time at all now. I love the colour and the ribbing match is perfect!

    1. It surprises me as well! I certainly wouldn't have predicted that when I bought the pattern.

  3. Wow! great hoodie. I need more pieces like this in my wardrobe. I always get sucked in by a dress pattern. Well done.

    1. I do too! I tend to wear dresses a lot for work but after hours hoodies and pants or shorts and tees are the true work horses

    1. Thank you! I think this is why I need to replace them so often. They just get worn and washed to death.
