Deer Print Hoodie

This hoodie was a Christmas present for my daughter.  I used a Burda Magazine pattern and this deer print sweatshirt fleece from SewBaby to make it.  Here is a back view.  One unusual detail in this pattern is the exposed seams.  You sew the pieces wrong sides together so that the seams show on the right side.  Then you topstitch each side down.  With fleece, it gives a nice kind of fuzzy feel to the seams.  Here is a close-up so you can see what I mean:

She has worn it several times since getting it for Christmas, which means it has passed the ultimate test- her opinion!

I may make this pattern again for myself.  There is an activewear contest going on at for January that I'm thinking about entering.  Maybe I'll use this fleece for me!


  1. What a cute, youthful hoodie! I also love the two black/mint houndstooth coats you made recently. Happy New Year, Ann, best wishes for more great sewing!

  2. what an adorable hoodie! I totally love the deer print fleece. Your daughter looks gorgeous.

  3. Such a chic hoodie on your pretty daughter! It sure means a lot to mom when it passes "will my child think it's cool enough to wear?" test. I cannot wait to see your version!

  4. Great job - and it passed the test!!!
