McCall's 7688 and sewed view C, substituting the sleeve and cuff for the sleeves with the casing and tie. The fabrics are Liverpool knits from Cali Fabrics. Let me pause for a moment to tell you how much I like Cali Fabrics! I've ordered a few times in the past year and fabrics are always described accurately, are beautiful in person, and they ship fast!
The hood, which will always be worn down, is cut from the floral fabric.
I used Coats & Clark Eloflex thread, which I purchased locally at Joann Fabrics, for the entire project. It worked beautifully on this knit. I did wind the bobbin slower than I normally would, and adjusted the tension to get a nice stitch. There's no need to use a stretch stitch or small zig-zag when sewing knits using this thread. I love stretching the fabric and trying to pop the stitches after I've sewn them - so far so good! I really like this thread!
When I cut out this hoodie I started with a small in the neck/shoulder area and tapered to a medium at the bust/waist/hip. The bottom band is a bit tight. Since I cut it crosswise it didn't have as much stretch and a cutting it slightly larger would have helped.
Overall I'm really pleased with my striped/floral hoodie! It's not a style I'm typically drawn to, but I do see myself tossing it on with jeans for a fun, casual look and plan on using this pattern again!
