This is the first piece of menswear I’ve made for a long time. It’s Burda 120 12/2018 made up in dark green fleece from Empress Mills, for my husband. This is a nice easy to sew design and doesn’t require a lot of extra supplies beyond the fabric. The only notions used are a couple of eyelets and a cord for the hood drawstring. I didn’t even try to match the cord colour to the fleece but went with a black one. I had no idea what to search for online for the cord, so ended up getting one from Maculloch and Wallis when I was in London last. I think it’s this one which they describe as ‘acrylic wool cord’.
The hood seam is flat felled so no hood lining is required. The picture below shows it a bit more clearly.

It’s a beautiful colour and looks very cozy.
i love your version.. and i love that pattern too, made it twice for my husband, once as per pattern instructions, other time i skipped pocket and hoodie, and made regular ribbed neck instead.. he has already requested more, so i guess he loves them too
Thanks! Yes I think there are more of these in my future sewing too 🙂
I love hoodies. The color is so rich looking.
Thanks! Fleece seems to come in a much better range of colours than most other fabrics,at least around here. I don’t usually have to compromise when looking for a particular colour.
Nice hoodie! I have an eyelet pliers – much easier than setting with a pin and mallet.
Ooh that’s a thought…I’ll have a browse!
