Modkid Modified // Breeann with Lined Hood

Thursday, October 01, 2015

This may be one of the simplest ways to modify a hooded top pattern, yet it gives you such great versatility. Some fabrics need lining due to being ugly or uncomfortable on the wrong side. A lined hood also gives additional warm or a fun place to add a pop of color. I've used this technique to line the hood of a Modkid Breeann, but this would work just the same for the new Modkid Dakota pattern.

There really are only a few basic steps for lining a hood. Cut out your main hood pattern pieces, then cut two additional hood pattern pieces in your lining fabric. Sew the main hood pieces right sides together around the curved center seam. Repeat for the hood lining pieces.

Place the main hood piece right sides together with the lining hood piece aligning the center seam at the top of the hood. Stitch the lining to the hood around the front of the hood with a 1/2" seam allowance since that was the hem allowance for an unlined hood.

Turn the hood right sides out. Press and topstitch along the front seam you just created. Baste the layers together at the neck edge. Now you are ready to attach the hood following the pattern instructions. Just treat the double layered hood as one piece.
