Johnny B. Good Hoodie, a pattern by Shwin Designs (go to patterns)

I finally get to show you the Johnny B. Good Hoodie I've been working on this entire KCW. So so proud it's finished and really happy with the result.

The Johnny B. Good Hoodie is a pattern by Shwin Designs for Go To Patterns  (affiliate links) and I made it for my monthly ambassador round. It's a button up shirt with options for long or short sleeves, a hood or collar and additional shoulder patches. The size range is 12 months-8 years.

Since we're all hoodie fans over here it was an obvious choice to make the hooded option. I had an autumn version in mind in a plaided flannel with a contrast back yoke and sleeve plackets.

Ah did I say sleeve plackets? This is the second time I've sewn sleeve plackets, ever! I was a bit hesitant when I reached this step of the tutorial and let myself be distracted by taking on a completely different project instead of dealing with this right away.

Finally I gave myself the necessary kick in the butt and finished the shirt. The plackets required some thought but I managed by just following the tutorial and pictures closely. I would say some sewing experience is probably a good thing if you want to take on this pattern.

I made the size 4 in width with a 6 in length and the fit is perfect. Make sure you check the measurements table before you start cutting into your fabric. Combining the sizes is easy to do and definitely worth it!

My oldest is very pleased with this shirt, it's easy to take off on gymclass days, the flannel is nice and soft and it has a hood, win win win!

  1. Dat ziet er goed uit. Lijkt me ook wel lekker comfortabel, met flanel :). Ik heb een aantal keer een 'sleeve placket' (ik weet niet eens het NL woord voor placket...) gemaakt bij het Ethan Shirt van SisBoom patterns. Het is inderdaad je verstand op 0 en de instructies volgen, dan lukt het wel.
