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.

Step 2: MAKE THE PROTOTYPE

Made the prototype in paper and try it on.
My first one didn't really work out, it was too little, but the one in the picture was finally fine.
Made it big so you can wear it on top of other clothes.

Step 3: CUT FABRIC

You need 2 different color fabric sheets: cut 2 pattern in each one (opposite): you are going to have 4 pieces.
Then cut other  2 stripe out of one of the fabric sheet (like in the picture).

Step 4: ZIG-ZAG

Sew with a zig-zag stitch all the edges of the fabric pattern, so it wont unthread.

Step 5: SEW THE HOODY

Pin and sew together the top part of the hoodyes of the same color, inside out.

Step 6: SEW THE HOODYES TOGETHER

Pin ans sew the front part of the two hoodye together (with the right face facing together, first photo).
Then flip the over, so they will both have the right face facing out (second photo).

Step 7: SEW THE HARM HOLE

Pin and sew together the harm hole (one color fabric to the other one, like in the photo), flipping a little edge inside.

Step 8: SEW STRAPS

Sew the two srips (the ones you previously cut) in half lengthwise, inside out .
Then flip them right side out.
Pin them to the bottom part of the vest hoody, between the two different layer of fabric, and sew them.

Step 9: SEW THE BOTTOM PART

Pin and sew together the bottom part of the vest hoody, flipping a little bit of the edge inside.
You are done!

Step 10: DONE

You are done! I hope that with the help of the photo I were clear...

Step 11: WEAR!

Wear it! Tie it in front with the two lace, and you can wear it both color!
I really like 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!
That's a funny idea! <br>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.
Hope you win...cause I really really like this!
Me too!! Thanks a lot, you are really nice!
This is beautiful! And a great fabric choice!
Thanks! I'm happy you notice my fabric I tough was nice!
Would love to see this catch on, Summer would be great can't wear a Hoodie, wear a Vest-Hoodie...
: )
You did a good job on this design for a hoodie /vest keep up with the good work !
Tanks! I will try !
So simple but so very clever !!
thanks for the appreciation!
Now just imagine it made in dark brown or black leather / suede.
Leather sound cool, maybe I will try
Treated to be waterproof of course.
Hey! Your pretty face caught my attention on this post. You are beautiful! <br>Great job!
Brilliant!!!
Great job but..&quot;these aren't the droids your looking for&quot;
very interesting look
Thanks!
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!
Thanks! I really like how it look large too.
very interesting look
Very very nice! good job!
Thanks!
Cool. Almost like a hooded bolero jacket.
Thanks! That would look super cool too
It makes you look like you're from the future! <br>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 &quot;NO, I mean what YEAR!!&quot;. When they tell you the year, say &quot;IT WORKED!!! There's still TIME!!&quot; and run away like a crazy person.
That what I usually do!
ur looking sooooooooooooooooo pretty =)
thanks!
Make your vest hoodie out of shiny material then go do that. Sounds like good fun to me!
You are beautiful and this is sooooooo creative.
thanks!
I'm going to make myself one in every single color. XD faaaantastic. Love it!!
Thanks! They are addictive!
Very cute and inventive! Thanks for sharing and have a splendorous day! <br>sunshiine
thanks, you too!
Oh man I love this! D:
Thanks!
