Making a hood
I was excited and also nervous about making this.
I've never made a hood before for a jacket, and I couldn't find my pattern reference book I got in my NC year for a guide.
Below is the original pattern piece, after making the paper copy
I used this reference from Pinterest as a rough guide after making an attempt myself, though it ended up looking more like a space helmet/traditional dutch hat.
After looking at this I noticed that it didn't need to curve in at the top, and came up with this and made a mock up,
after the mock up I noticed It was better for the design to have a godet in the middle to round of the hood. (5cm godet)
Here is a very rough idea of the hood design
(I tried to work the drawing tablet and gave up for the mouse so do excuse the drawing)
notches: I notched to match where the half way point is on the hood
(17.78 cm to separate the hood and the heads extended shape)
in hindsight: I would have notches the godet part of the hood a few times to balance out the hood.
Also in hindsight: more images for blogging.
