In the Hood - Minerva Makes - the Hey June Halifax Hoodie

 Hello!

Today I bring you yet more hooded comfortable goodness - this time in the form of the Halifax Hoodie by Hey June Handmade. 

I'll get to the point straight away - it's amazing.

Pattern - Hey June have some wonderful patterns and I'm a big fan of most of them as they seem to be drafted really well and have taken very little fitting, if any. For me, they are true to size and the instructions fantastic. This was my first attempt at a separating zip and the pattern takes you through everything you need for a great finish. 

Fabric - the main fabric I used was some Petrol Sweatshirt fabric from Minerva. Full disclosure - the sweatshirt fabric was gifted to me in exchange for a tutorial on how to put this hoodie together. If you want a step by step guide taking you through the Halifax Hoodie you can find it here on my Minerva profile :)   (Ps. I don't intend for all my posts to be Minerva related, I'm just catching up with the writing at the moment!)

The lining of this fabric is an AMAZING reptile print cotton. This was also gifted to me in a wholly different way. The lovely Azapops gave me an incredible 2 meters of this at the Sewing Weekender, just because she knows I like reptiles. Such a lovely thought I was very touched, sewing people are amazing right?!

Using cotton for the hood lining and the zip facing/neck facing was great as it also gave great stability where it was needed and sewing over it was so much easier then the sweat shirting directly. A walking foot is highly recommended!

The perfect final addition - a tortoise zipper pull!

Should the need arise for another hoodie, I will absolutely be reaching for this patter again!
