The Hoodie Project: McCalls 8070 & Simplicity 8793

Hi everyone! I hope all is well in your world. As a mom of two student’s learning virtually, life has been an adventure 😂🤦🏾‍♀️. We are progressing through and learning a lot. To all of the parents out there, we got this. Today I am doing things a little differently on my blog. Instead of doing a full write up, I am posting a behind the seams video discussing my recent make. Let me know if you want me to do more blog posts like this in the comments below.

“Behind the Seams” of my hoodie and knit pants project.

Fabric Used

I used a French Terry knit from Melanated Fabrics. In case they are not in stock, you can also use their paradox knit to create this look as well.

Pattern Used/Size Cut

Hoodie: McCalls Pattern 8070 view A (no modifications)

Knit Pants: Simplicity Pattern 8793 view A (No modifications)

Lined the hoodie and created the cord with Ankara fabric from my stash.

Final Thoughts

I absolutely loved this hoodie and knit pants combo. The fabric is not only soft and comfortable, but it is also great quality. I am actually creating another sweater using the same pattern, that is how much I love it. The pants pattern will also be on repeat.

Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog, I truly appreciate it. I hope that this blog was informative and that you learned something that will help you in your next sewing project. Comment below and let me know your thoughts or questions. Also, please make sure to subscribe to my blog.

I was born in Jamaica and raised in the South. I guess you can call me a Southern Islander. I am a wife, mom, and sewist/DIYer. I rarely purchase clothing anymore, because I like the ability to pick my own fabric and personalize my clothing to fit my shape, personality, and style. My style is comfy chic, because no matter what I wear, it has to be chic, but comfortable. Sewing has not just been about creating garments, but it has been a source of healing for me.
