A gorgeous hoodie

I saw a 'little red riding hood jacket' with a Steam punk feel for my Minerva Crafts project using McCalls 4261 as the jacket basis.
Worn to work.
Weekend styling

What did I use?

What did I change?
You might notice the hood is lined. 

The whole jacket is lined with the fine black knit fabric suggested by Vicki. Annette prefers this fine knit to line jackets, skirts and dresses with. I know I used this knit lining last year with my Vogue houndstooth dress.

From the picture below you can see that I extended the jacket length and added width at the hem. This provides the added width so I could use the ribbon lacing at the back of the jacket.


The picture below shows the front jacket hem extended with a slight amount of added width for my hips. I've overlayed the new pocket piece and checked the pocket placement and depth at the side seam.

The hem is curved so I've tried to match the side seams for this new hem style.
Here's my little riding hood smile.
Thanks Minerva Crafts for letting me update my casual jacket for something that's just a bit different again.
