The Stanton Hoodie is here! Let’s get inspired to sew up some cozy Stantons for the season.
Say goodbye to oversized, ill-fitting hoodies thanks to the Stanton, a hoodie sewing pattern designed specifically for curves. The Stanton gives you that relaxed fit you love in a hoodie, without being overly baggy or too tight in the bust. That’s because it comes in sizes 0-32 and cup sizes C-H, and with the Cashmerette Sizing Calculator, you can craft your own customized fit!
Hoodies aren’t just activewear anymore—they’re great for all kinds of occasions! Here are some hoodie ideas from ready-to-wear fashion to get you inspired to sew your first Stanton.
Stanton Hoodie Inspiration from Ready-to-Wear Fashion
Let’s start classic with a solid hoodie. A neutral color like gray, black, or cream will go with anything in your wardrobe, or make a statement in a bold color.
Play around with prints! From stripes to floral to animal prints to tie dye, your Stanton can reflect your own style.
Color blocking your Stanton is easy as can be thanks to built-in style lines and separate pieces.
We love pattern hacks around here, and there are so many fun ways to play with the Stanton. Cut it short for a cropped hoodie or add length for a sweater dress, or add a drawstring in the waist to cinch it in!
Hoodies and activewear go hand-in-hand, but there are lots of other great ways to style your Stanton! Throw on an Auburn Blazer over your Stanton for a smart look, or pair it with Ames Jeans and boots for the perfect autumn ensemble.
Stanton Hoodie Fabric Ideas
For the main fabric of the Stanton, we recommend sweatshirt fleece, fleece, french terry, ponte or any mid- to heavy-weight knits with at least 15% crosswise stretch. This is the ideal time to shop for these kinds of fabrics—so many great indie shops have stocked their shelves with cozy fabrics for fall.
Why not make your Stanton a one-of-a-kind hoodie with textured or printed sweater knits? (Or bust out the vinyl cutter and print your own unique design!)
Some fabric shops offer coordinating ribbing to go with their sweater knits and fleeces—keep an eye out for their recommendations to save yourself the hassle of tracking down the perfect color match.
Can’t find the ribbing you want, or prefer not to use ribbing? No problem! You can make the cuffs and hem band from your main fabric.
We hope you’re feeling inspired to sew your first Stanton Hoodie! Be sure to share your makes on social media using the hashtag #StantonHoodie so we can applaud (and envy) your cozy new hoodies!
