But after the course was over, the hoodie's gigantic proportions no longer made sense. I wanted to keep it, but realized I needed to learn how to tailor a hoodie if I wanted it to actually fit me.
How to Tailor a HoodieMy mom, a sewing expert who runs her own custom sewing and upholstery shop, taught me how to tailor a hoodie in the most basic way possible. Tailoring a hoodie requires the same approach I've described in my related post, "How to Tailor a Sweatshirt": http://www.bakergal.com/2009/11/tailoring-sweatshirt.html
Check out the tutorial there, and please leave me a comment if you have any additional questions about how to tailor a hoodie specifically. If I can't answer it myself, I can always tap into my mom's massive knowledge base on your behalf!
