How to Make a Men's Fleece Hoodiecomments (16) December 16th, 2011
2. Then repeat the same process for the sleeve, following the shape of the short T-shirt sleeve but extending the length to be a long sleeve.
3. For the hood, refer to a hoodie you have on hand to get the slight S-shape of the neckline, and just make sure the neckline circumference will equal that of the shirt neckline. You might want to round the top seam so that it hugs the head, but that's optional. Other than that, the hood is simply another rectangle.
4. Lastly, I cut a kangaroo pocket, which is yet another rectangle with the upper corners chopped off for the openings.
Now that you've got your cut pieces, you can start sewing:
5. First, hem the openings on the patch pocket, with a 1/2-inch double-turned hem. Turn under the remaining sides by 1/2 inch, pin, and edgestitch the pocket onto the front of the shirt.
