  Make your own fun and flowy top with this simple sewing tutorial! Today, I’m going to show you How To Sew A Hooded Circle Top With Printable Pattern! This hooded circle top has a modern classic style with simple lines and a beautiful finish. Nothing beats being warm and cozy, especially in something you made. I love the little hood on this, it is so soft and the perfect addition to this top. Wearing this top feels a little bit like a poncho, but I prefer this style for comfort and all-day wear. When my sewing friend, Debbie, showed me this pattern, I realized I didn’t have anything like it in my closet. I knew I had to make it. This is a great addition to your DIY wardrobe for those chilly months of the year. I made mine in a color block version, but you could make it out of one solid color if you wanted to. The hood is a cute addition and is great for keeping the wind off of your neck and ears. I used some knit fabric with quite a bit of stretch to it and I think it turned out great.

So, pick out the fabric you want to you and gather up your supplies from the list below. I find that a rotary cutter makes cutting the curves of the hood quick and easy. It also makes quick work of cutting out the hemline of your top, given the curves there as well. Now, let’s get started making this fun top!

Printing Instructions

This hooded circle top pattern has layers, so that you can choose to print only the size you need. To achieve this Adobe Reader must be installed on your machine or device.

Before printing check that your printer is set to No scaling or Actual size. Set the Page orientation to Auto or Portrait. And then print page 1. Measure the 2” test square to see if it measures exactly 2”. If it does, print the remaining pages.

Trimming Pages

Cut off the right and top margins of each printed page before assembling the pattern. You can use tape or school glue to adhere your paper pattern together.
