Hooded Hipster Singlet

By ari - December 02, 2012

Hi guys! I'm guest-posting over at Project Run & Play today!

I've written a tutorial and made a free pattern for you to download for this Hooded Hipster Singlet. Its size is for a 3 year old, and I have made 7 of these so far! They are quite easy to whip up once you've made one, and in this {Australian} weather they are perfect and airy without sacrificing being hip.

It has a roomy hood, which I am so so proud of. I drafted it free hand and I guess I've made enough hoods now in my life the pattern for it came out PERFECT first try. Like totally perfect. You gotta love small wins like that.

I made this one from some green fabric I sprayed with bleach when I was making myself a Boba Fett dress. The dress never happened, so I used the fabric for this grungey singlet instead!

Another purple one. This fabric is so awesome and thicker than regular t-shirt fabric. It's so nice to work with. I'm going to be sad when it is all used up!

I'm a huge fan of yellow! I think I'm in the minority but I love how happy it makes me feel!

I reconstructed a shirt for this one, but didn't have enough for the hood, so I used black for a contrast hood.

You can even make it without a hood, like I did here by reconstructing a shirt of mine:

I also made a black one with a rainbow striped pocket but its in the wash!

Head on over to Project Run & Play and check out the tute, it's easy! While you're there, auditions are open for Season SIX!

  1. This was one of my favorites from the Sew Along Group, great job. I am thinking about making similar for my little girl but maybe cutting the neck a little lower and use it for layering. Probably something like this:


I love comments!
