I figure if I can make a corset, I'll have no problem making a hoodie.
This is a corset I made from this really old plaid fabric my grandmother gave me. I used a pattern for the general concept, but changed a lot. This should've had a zipper, but I didn't want to waste one on my first shot at this.

After many hours of me screaming at my carbon tracing paper for not working, I got it right. Or I just got lucky because I couldn't tell which side of this particular fabric was right or wrong. And after several more hours of pricking my fingers and screaming at my machine for not pinning my fabric correctly (yes, it was the machine's fault), I finally finished sewing this thing. And then came the stringing of the corset. Jeez...

Credits go to Caitlin, my lovely model. She's my brother's friend's girlfriend and did this randomly for me. I gave her lots of thanks because models aren't easy to come by and because she agreed without knowing what I was making her wear. =]
