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 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

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!
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.

marcellahella (author)  scubacarl1 year ago
Tanks! I will try !

Treated to be waterproof of course.

very interesting look
marcellahella (author)  l8nite1 year ago
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!
marcellahella (author)  atepinkrose1 year ago
Thanks! I really like how it look large too.

Very very nice! good job!
marcellahella (author)  shazni1 year ago
Thanks!
Cool. Almost like a hooded bolero jacket.
marcellahella (author)  fungus amungus1 year 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!
