Some time ago I wrote about the release of Suco by Susana’s first pattern and I can tell you she is not messing around! Today, she released another pattern, the Luis & Joana Hoodie!
The hoodie is intended for both boys and girls, from size 12 months to 12 years, made using knits, which make it very comfortable and very practical. For example, I know M will use hers a lot to go to ballet lessons because she doesn’t want to damage her hair bun!
Once again, Susana made a great work and the pattern is well drafted, everything matched perfectly and both me and M are really pleased with how it turned out. 🙂
For now, you can get the pattern at the UpCraft Club with 25% off and after also at Suco by Susana. This time the pattern is being released in Portuguese and English. Great news!
My initial plan was to make one for each girl, but we are having a very busy time I ended up making only one for M, at least for now! I made a size 6 without modifications. The pattern has two pocket options and I made the slightly curved ones and opted for a lined hood.
The Fabric I used for the main body is a quilted knit, that is soft, warm and I really love. For the hood, I used a jersey knit, lighter than the main fabric and for the cuffs and pocket detail I used a ribbing knit, in the same colour as the jersey. All the fabrics are organics and I got them from here.
Last year I made my daughters a tee with a 7 at the back for their 7th Birthday and quite some time ago they asked me for another, but this year with an 8. When Susana asked for testers I thought the hoodie could actually be a good idea, instead of a tee!
To make the ones from last year I used transfer paper, but after the first wash the tees were ruined, so this time I wanted to use another method, therefor I tried appliqué and it still needs to go thru the washing test, but they look much prettier! For the 8 I used a Liberty as well as in the hood.
M wore already her new hoodie on her Birthday and she really loves it! I think this smile says it all. 😉
Congratulations Susana on another great pattern!
