Winter Warmers: Women's Hoodie Sewing Patterns

The word hoodie brings to mind a teenage boy, hood up, slouching in the dark, up to no good. But seriously, everyone needs a hoodie! On a cold day, pull the hood up to keep warm (or keep your hair dry when you forget your umbrella!).

Now, on some days a bulky over-sized hoodie is the perfect option. But what about those times when you want to stay warm but still look feminine and pretty?

Who says hoodies have to be big, bulky and boring? The Lisse Cowl and Hoodie from New Horizons Designs is so pretty and feminine, with the pleated tulip front (and it comes in girl's sizes too!).


A bit of color-blocking can turn a simple hoodie into something so much more stylish. I love the chevron design of the Elevation Hoodie from New Horizon Designs.
