Make the Dorothy Jacket even more practical by adding a detachable hood!
Our Dorothy Jacket sewing pattern is the perfect outerwear for spring and autumn. Now you can make Dorothy weather-proof with the Add-On Hood. The great news is that if you’ve already made the jacket, there is no unstitching involved to add the hood. We’ve made it detachable, so you can put it on your Dorothy when you need it and take it off when you don’t.
In the Stitch School Workshop, we’ll show you how to sew a neatly lined hood that connects to the Dorothy Jacket with simple press stud fastenings.
Sew the Dorothy Jacket and Add-On Hood in a cotton twill, cotton drill, twill crepe, gabardine or stretch denim. You could also use a mediumweight waterproof fabric like a waxed canvas to make a classic raincoat. Have fun with the hood lining by using a coordinating or contrasting cotton. It’s a great chance to use up some scraps from your stash!
PLEASE NOTE: The Dorothy Jacket Add-On Hood is not a complete pattern. You will need a copy of the Dorothy Jacket pattern to attach the hood to.
