Jacqueline Hoodie is stylish yet cozy. Inspired by a high-end designer piece, Jacqueline Hoodie's ready-to-wear appeal comes from the extensive use of double top stitching, decorative front buttons, epaulets with buttons and in-seam welt pockets. A lined three-piece hood contours around your head for a great fit. The armhole princess seams give subtle shaping to the hoodie.

- Primary fabric: Medium-weight knit fabric with 35% to 50% two-way or four-way stretch is ideal. Interlock, French terry, double knit and Ponte are great choices. If you use fabric with less stretch, you may choose a larger size. Conversely, if you use fabric with more stretch, you may choose a smaller size. However, avoid fabric with too much stretch as you may find it difficult to topstitch. Avoid very heavy-weight fabric if your sewing machine is not heavy-duty enough to stitch across multiple layers of intersecting seams or to topstitch. Woven fabric is not recommended. For your reference, the featured purple hoodie is made of a 100% cotton 12 oz (406 gsm) interlock fabric. You may substitute rib knit, preferably with spandex for greater recovery, for the sleeve bands and bottom band. You would use less fabric than stated due to the greater stretch of the rib knit. Therefore, you should shorten the bands as needed.
- Interfacing: Use light-weight knit tricot fusible interfacing.
- One jacket-weight separating zipper in the following length. You will likely have to purchase a longer zipper and shorten it yourself (zipper shortening tutorial included):
XXS: 23 3⁄4 (60.5 cm)
XS: 24 (61 cm)
S: 24 1⁄2 (62 cm)
M: 24 3⁄4 (63 cm)
L: 25 (64 cm)
XL: 25 1⁄2 (64.5 cm)
- 3/8" or 1/2" (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide straight fusible stay tape
- Two 7/8" (23 mm) buttons for the epaulets (if the option is used)
- Twenty 7/8" (23 mm) buttons for the front (if the option is used)
- Three size 10 (7/8" or 23 mm) sewn-on snap fasteners
- One piece of 1/2" (1.25 cm) wide
- Steam-A-Seam Lite (or equivalent light-weight double-sided fusible tape) (optional)
- Ball point (or stretch) machine needles (use a bigger needle, e.g. size 100/16, when stitching through many layers of fabric)
- Size 100/16 or bigger universal machine needle for sewing zipper
- Walking foot (or use similar function in your machine, such as the IDT or Accufeed system)
- Buttonhole foot
- Serger machine (optional to finish your seam allowances)
Most natural fibers shrink in the wash, be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.
