Step One: Cut two lining pieces using the hood pattern piece. Right sides together, sew the two pieces together along the rear seam, using a HALF INCH seam allowance. This is a quarter inch larger than the outer hood, making the lining just slightly smaller.
Step Two: Cut a 3/4" strip from the front of the hood. The "X" shown in the photos is the mark for the eyelets. This is just for your reference. I mistakenly marked it without thinking. The eyelet will only go through the OUTER fabric, NOT the lining! Pay no attention to the fact that I interfaced the lining in that area...do what I say, not what I did!
Step Three: Interface over the marking for the eyelet on the outer hood. Apply the eyelet to the outer fabric only. Again, the lining does not need interfaced in this area.
Step Four: Right sides together, align the front edges of the outer hood and hood lining. Sew these together using a 1/4" seam allowance.
Step Five: Flip the lining inside the outer hood. The lining should sit 1/4" inside the outer hood. Align the raw edges of the bottom of the outer hood and lining, WRONG sides together. Optional: baste this edge.
From here, sew the hood to the bodice as directed in the original instructions. On my hoodie, I went the extra mile and applied twill tape over the seam for a nicer finish. I hope this tutorial was helpful, and thank you to Ashleigh for doing all the hard work!
