Skinny Hoodie McCall's 4705

Miss 9 needs more warm tops for winter and I am tired of making zip up hoodies. Miss 9 does like hoods though and has asked for some skinnier tops. So I am going to use McCalls M4705, a great pattern I have a few times before. I have redrafted the front pattern piece so it will be cut on the fold to eliminate the zip and I have taken the sides in to make the whole top slimmer fitting and also added a little shape to it. I have also added a U shaped opening to the centre front which I will line up with the hood and have a contrasting binding going all the way around. It will also have a kangaroo pocket on the front. Well, in my head it works anyway.
Miss 9 wants the first one made from a very bright, almost flouro, lime green cotton sweatshirting I bought on Trade Me last week. I intend to bind it either with navy blue or a multi-coloured striped knit. All the fabrics are in the clothes dryer pre-shrinking at the moment, I will decide on the fabric combo this afternoon when I start making the top.
