The Hood

I constructed and stitched on the hood the way I always do. I like to topstitch my hood seams with a twin needle. I think it looks good, adds strength to the seams and makes the seams tidier. Of course the finished result would look even better if I had used matching thread for the overlocking, but I didnt have any.
I find the topstitching much easier to do if I iron the seams flat as I go. The curved end of my ironing board is perfect for fitting the center curved seam around. It means ironing on the edge of the ironing board, but hey, it works :o)
