Hide Away – Longhoodie

I commute by train. I have to change the train 2 times. This has its disadvantages. But there is also the advantage that if I have to wait there are kiosks at the stops that sell sewing magazines.

You can wear them shut, you can wear them open and you can easily take them off. This is crucial for this kind of weather right now. Super cold when the sun is away, a lot warmer when it shows up.

IMG_3457Pattydoo is a German pattern designer and lately she released some men patterns. The latest is the Jordan Hoodie. Most of pattydoo’s design are very basic and kept simple, they are also very inexpensive, like 3 € per pattern. Uncommon for a German pattern designer there are always seam allowances included in the patterns. They are only 1 cm, but better than nothing.
