I wanted a big hoody to wear on top of my sweaters. 
I wanted it to be easy to make and sew and really simple looking. And I wanted it reversible.
 
If you like it can you vote for me in the contest? Thanks!

Step 1: THE PATTERN

This is the simple pattern I come out with.
To made it for your own size measure yourself from the top of your head to under your shoulders and your chest.
Plus you need 2 stripe for close it.

I love this idea I and my grandma are making one now but next time can you be more specific with the instructions please we are having to make the pattern a totally different way but I love the idea
thanks for this awesome and simple design process. its the first instructables that I have done and I'm on my second one already with another due in the next few days as hand sewing takes a little longer. I'm looking forward to making my best friend green with envy and then giving her one as a surprise!

I'm happy to ear you are using my instructables.

Fantastic idea! I can see this as a children's clothing item, such as a lightweight coverup for the beach in the summer, and maybe a reversible print in the winter. I think kids would love this.

Love, Love, Love! I had tried to come up with a good hoodie for the contest, but this is hands-down MY FAVORITE! It certainly is very fresh, and in my opinion very stylish! Vest-hoodie combo creates the largest hoodie opening and is my favorite look! Awesome job!
marcellahella (author)  atepinkrose2 years ago
Thanks! I really like how it look large too.

Cool. Almost like a hooded bolero jacket.
marcellahella (author)  fungus amungus2 years ago
Thanks! That would look super cool too
It makes you look like you're from the future!
Here's a fun trick. While wearing your futuristic vest hoodie, run up to someone and ask them the date. When they tell you the date look frantic and grab them by the shoulders and say "NO, I mean what YEAR!!". When they tell you the year, say "IT WORKED!!! There's still TIME!!" and run away like a crazy person.
That what I usually do!

Make your vest hoodie out of shiny material then go do that. Sounds like good fun to me!
