You had to know I was going to put a hood on it eventually, right?
This weekend, I got a little experimental with the Flashback Tee pattern. I added a hood and layered sleeve. It was a pretty easy adjustment, and didn't add much time onto the project.
Basically, I cut two sleeves - one long sleeve and one short sleeve. I cut my short sleeve from a thrifted shirt, so it had existing hems, but if you don't have existing hems, you'll want to hem the short sleeves before attaching them to the shirt. Then, I simply treated the long and shirt sleeves as one unit - I attached them at the same time, and sewed the arm seam as one, just being sure to catch all four layer (each side of the short sleeve and each side of the long sleeve) as I sewed. You could also use this method for adding the layered sleeve.
For the hood, I took the same approach. I drafted and sewed a hood based on the measurement for the neck band. Then, when it was time to attach the neck band to the shirt, I simply added the hood at the same time, all in one seam. You sandwich the neck band between the hood and shirt body, with the right side of the neckband and hood facing the right side of the shirt. Stitch that seam, and VIOLA! Your tee is now a hoodie.
Alternatively, you could skip the neck band all together, and just add a hood. That would work too. Lots of versatility in this pattern!
Rae released the pattern today, so for those of you who've been waiting, it's out!
