The weather decided to warm slightly this week so I ran outside to photo my lady-like peplum hooded jacket.
The pattern is McCall's 6442; it is described as a lined, wrap coat, with a flared lower edge. But when I looked at the line drawing I saw a hoodie, a very posh hoodie, a hoodie for a lady.
I figured I need a fancy fabric for my lady like hoodie, when I found a plaid boucle in my stash I felt it would fit the bill. And for a tongue in cheek Little Red Riding Hood effect I found a vivid red 80's floral rayon lining.

During the set-in sleeve construction I cheated. Opposed to setting in 4 sleeves I opted for the standard two and applied the outer sleeve and lining to the finished jacket in one fail swoop. To finish my seams I serged all layers together.
I also added a buttoning belt with carriers. I did not have enough fabric to make the tie belt and I liked the idea of a fancy closure. Breaking all the rules changed the front closure direction for no other reason than the fact that I liked how the hood liked at the collar line.
