25. Pic 46 – If you do not clip the curves on the hood, this is what the curve of the hood looks like when you turn it right side out. Puckers. 🙁 You will need to clip curves if you do a curved hood, no matter which way you curve it. If you choose a straight hood, you won’t have to clip curves. You can also elasticize a straight hood. Props to Obimama for the cute inward curving hood. If you want to buy a Mei Tai with a hood with that design, you will probably need to track down an Obimama because I do not think anyone else has made that design, although I didn’t realize that when I made this pattern.

28. Pic 49 – Mark the topstitching lines on the right side. You can put the hood strap(s) in there to see how much room you need to leave on the sides to make the tunnels for the hood straps.

  1. I stopped to admire my work 🙂 It was glorious. Never would have remembered to clip the curve if you hadn’t included it…Fashion Studies in High School was a long time ago!
