Introducing the Stanton Hoodie, a hoodie sewing pattern designed for curves!

I love a fitted, fancy garment as much as the next person, but sometimes I’m just after comfort—without looking like I totally gave up on all sense of style. Enter: the Cashmerette Stanton Hoodie! It’s a hoodie sewing pattern designed for curves—at last.

Now there’s no need to compromise between coziness, fit and fashion, because we’ve got you covered. The Cashmerette Stanton Hoodie comes in sizes 0 – 32, cup sizes C – H, and it’s available as a printed pattern or PDF pattern in the two size ranges of 0 – 16 and 12 – 32.

And we have a special launch offer for you! Pre-order the printed pattern now (expected to ship in November) and you’ll get the PDF instantly, absolutely free!

Angela is wearing the Stanton Hoodie view A. She’s in a size 8 G/H, graded to a 10 waist and 12 hip. Her measurements are bust 39″, waist 32.5″, hip 43″.

What makes it special? Let me count the ways!

  • It’s designed for curves: that means a relaxed, bust-friendly fit
  • That fab curved pocket seam elevates it from being “just” a basic hoodie
  • The option for a pullover or zipped up version
  • Pockets for days

View A is a classic pullover style with a roomy front pocket (which you can also leave off if you’re anti-pockets).

View B is a zip-up version, still with those awesome curved pockets to stash your stuff.

The Stanton Hoodie is designed for mid to heavy weight knits, like sweatshirting, fleece, french terry or heavy ponte. We recommend around 15% stretch for comfort when you’re moving, but it has positive ease, so if your dream fabric has a bit less, you’ll be fine.

Jenny is wearing a Stanton Hoodie view A. She’s in a 20 G/H, and her measurements are bust 50″, waist 42″, hip 48″.

You’ll also need some other bits and bobs for your hoodie masterpiece: ribbing for the cuffs and waistband, twill tape, a drawstring and grommets, a separating zip for view B, and potentially some interfacing—you can see all the requirements on the Stanton Hoodie page over here.

Rebecca is wearing the Stanton Hoodie in view B. She’s wearing a size 32 G/H. Her measurements are bust 62″, waist 53″ and hip 62″.

I have to confess that in the past I’ve never been much of a hoodie wearer —they always just felt a bit overwhelming and baggy with my big boobs, but I’m a total convert with the Stanton! I find myself reaching for it on the regular, and I’m pretty sure you will too.

    You know, every time I tell myself I have enough patterns to last a lifetime, you guys knock another one out of the park! I just love this!

  3. A beautiful, useful pattern, and oh my!, your photographs are spectacular. Rebecca just glows and radiates strength, and you all look fabulous.

    So freaking fabulous Jenny. You hit this one right out of the park for me. Retired and sometimes just tired, I don’t have a lot of places to go so this is just what I need for this winter. I’m already thinking of hacking this into a cardigan. Love it. Elaine

    LOVE this! Already purchased this and have some odd French terry and heavyweight cotton spandex in my stash for a muslin version. Then I’ll look at other fabrics. I’d love to make my daughter one as a Christmas present.

    However … where does one find ribbing? I found some tubular ribbing in a local fabric store a few years ago. They only had black and white. But I have used that stuff for kid’s clothing. Your versions show colorful ribbing. Where did you get it? Hopefully there will be some blog posts on sourcing fabric!

Let me know what you think!
