Step 6: The most confusing part!
This is the most confusing part of the project and there was no clear way I could think of to take a picture to make it any clearer so please bear with me.
This is the part of the project where we have to attach the hood to the base shirt itself. This is where patience and pins come into play.
First thing you will need to do is to take your base shirt and turn it inside out.
Next you will want to take your hood piece and turn it rightside out (so if you were looking at it, it would look like a normal hood with the sewn edge of the fabric on the inside of the hood)
Now take the bottom edge of the hood facing right side out and line it up with the open edge of the collar on the backside. (backside meaning where the collar would run along your back if you were wearing it)
You will start by lining it along the backside of the shirt until you have lined it up all the way along the front collar...All you need to do is make sure the bottom edge of the hood line up along the top edge of the open collar.
Don't worry if the hood doesn't meet all the way in the front.
Now keeping the two edges lined up together and keeping them there - push the hood down into the opening of the collar so it turns inside out. (meaning if you were to open the collar you now be able to clearly see the seam and open ends of the fabric where you sewed them together.)
(also it would have a bowl like appearance when looking down at it)
Now take your pins and pin the two edges together.
Take it to your sewing machine and sew them together.
Once again it doesn't have to be technically perfect just somewhat close. I usually do this part with a 1/4 inch seam from the end
Looking at the picture below you can see the Backside of the base shirt flipped inside out with the hood already pushed into the open collar and pinned.
Make sure to line up the seam on the hood with the middle of the back collar. An easy way to do this is to fold the shirt backwards in half and to line up the seam and this point.
Once you have found the point, take your pins and pin outward from there.
