Sew a reversible hoodie jacket with the Travel Trio Two sewing pattern
This hoodie is a perfect cozy layer for travel, work or cozying up at home. Double-layered reversible hoodie has a flyaway front with a single-button neck closure, no topstitching required, easy to construct with options to make it long, short or as a sleeveless vest. It’s dressy enough to wear to work with the Ruched Pencil Skirt, A-line skirt, knee-length or midi slim wrap skirt or the Perfect Pants Classic Wide leg pants as an easy ‘suit’ option.
SEW ALONG WITH TRAVEL TRIO TWO REVERSIBLE HOODIE JACKET 2018:
Order the pattern here, get your fabric and cut your size as per the Perfect Sizing Worksheet and the pattern envelope. We recommend rayon/lycra or ITY stretch Lycra. You want a drapey fabric that is not too heavy to make this reversible hoodie. It’s very important both sides / fabrics are the same stretch/recovery and hand or feel, for best results. Print and solid pair well together, as do coordinating prints and stripes. See below for instructions on how the sew along works.

We cover how the sew along works, how to select the size for your hoodie, how to pair up the best fabrics for the best results for your reversible hoodie jacket.
Sew the Hoodie bodies – you’ll sew the hoodie's body - front, back, sleeves and hood for each 'side' of the hoodie.
In this video, we show you how to sew the body of the hoodie together. We'll have already sewn one side of the hoodie, so if you are following along, go ahead and watch, then sew your two hoodie 'sides' together.
We’ll sew it together right on video! There are zero hem finishes to this hoodie, and we’ll tackle the easy side seam pull-through method.
Here's the entire hoodie sew along - you can actually sew your hoodie along with us, in this 52-minute video. Gather up your cut-out hoodies and sew with us!
