Black and cream hoodie (photo heavy)

The weather today was much cooler and perfect for me to wear my new hoodie from Ellie and Mac.  The weather has been very strange for the past couple of weeks; thankfully we are not getting the snow and ice.  One day it is 70 degrees and then we drop to 40-50 with lows some nights in the 30's.

I set up the tripod to take some photos before I ventured out into overcast and misty weather.  I am so happy with the outcome of this project and as I write this I have returned from shopping and the top meant the wearability test. So without further ado:

Here are photos of the front:

No photo shot should go without the hands in a pocket view:

Here is the back both wearing and hanging

and here are some views from the side

Here are a few close-ups of the drawstring and the cuffs.  I chose sections of the fabric for the cuffs to match up with each side of the overlay fabric.

I have purchased several Ellie and Mac patterns as I like the numerous styles offered and the prices are very reasonable.  I truly appreciate that because I am printing the pattern using my paper and ink, so it seems a fair bargain.  This is my first make and will not be my last.  And yes I am an affiliate and this is my first review in that role; my opinions are my own.  Should you have an interest in viewing the patterns and you click on my affiliate link on the left sidebar, then I could receive a commission.

The fabrics used in the making of this hoodie were from my stash and coincidently they were purchased from Fabric Mart at different times.  The cream-colored fabrics were used in a Vogue sweatshirt pattern a few years ago. The black and cream fabric was a border print that I purchased to make a dress which never happened.  It worked perfectly for this pattern.

I don't think I need another hoodie at this time and when I do I plan to use this one again.


  1. Super cute! Looks like the fit is comfy too, which is a double win.

  2. Love this on you, Linda! The textures are so interesting and work so well together. I will have to check out this pattern company!

  3. This is really cool Linda--I love your choice of fabrics, and the diagonal design line is quite striking!

  4. How did I miss this? Such a lovely hoodie!!! I love the fabric mixing.
