I made this Hoodie for Strapping Young Lad using the Luka Hoodie pattern from the book Sewing for Boys.
I made this using "recycled" fabric from other clothing. The flannel liner is a purchased fabric. I wouldn't want to make this using expensive quilting cotton...I could buy it just as easily as make it for less money than if I had bought the fabric. It uses quite a bit of yardage!
The pattern directions were obtuse for a few steps and there was one actual error. I googled this pattern and found that I wasn't alone in my frustrations regarding pattern errors.
But if you have some sewing experience, you wouldn't have a problem completing the jacket by relying on basic skills (knowing how to add the liner, etc)
It is sized as a 6/7 and I would say that it is generous in size. I'm pleased. My kiddo is pleased.
The project is not difficult, but I'd not recommend it for a beginner though only because of the pattern's lack of clarity.
And as for the finished product, I'd wear it if I could. :)
