Kitten Hoody from All the Rage Raglan

Well I finally (FINALLY!) went through my kids clothes! Piled everything they own into the living room and made piles of what fits and what needs to go. I regretted it the minute I started, but now I'm glad it's done. In this sort I discovered that my kids are REALLY lacking on the long sleeves and hoodies departments. Naturally this means you get another girlied up All the Rage Raglan tutorial!

This is really quite simple. Get out your front and back piece and decide where you want to have the top end and skirt start. The angled line bottom is where the armpit is, so keep that in mind. I cut my top where the two pattern pieces attach (see the paintbrush?).  I will likely do another but cut it closer to the armpit line, but for this one I wanted to do a kitten face and needed the space.

Cut 2 skirt pieces about 1.5 times the width of the top piece.

(ps. it really bothers me how bright the fabric is looking in the above pic... night pictures ...)

For the face I cut 4 triangles and sewed them right sides together then flipped and sewed on the  front of the shirt and painted the face. If you are doing a face I recommend doing it before sewing the shirt together. It saves so much headache.

Sew the top up as the pattern directs and then you put the skirt pieces right sides together and sew the side seams and then gather and sew to the top.

All done and adorable!
