I recently completed a lined hoodie for myself.  Well, I still have a couple of details to finish up like shortening the pulls on the hood.  I used TMx6, Box Jacket style with front and back shoulder gore.

I have trying to encourage my husband to try his hand at sewing. This is just the thing to show him.
What fabric did you use. This jacket looks great.

Thanks!  I used better quality sweat shirt fleece for the shell and poly for the lining - both from JoAnn.

Thanks, see response above for the fabric choices. If your husband likes to tinker with machines, then get him a vintage sewing machine to restore.  That will get him interested in the whole process.  Also, sewing is a lot like woodworking but more challenging in some ways.  The advantage of sewing is that you can do it indoors anytime in a spare room, and do not have to out in the cold, dirty garage or workroom.

 

 One of my latest Vintage machines I got for $10 at estate sale.  Works really well.

In this case, looks can be deceiving.  His name is Rodney and he hails from Japan, ca. 1953. He is made of cast iron and steel, weighs over 20 lb., and is about the size of the Singer Featherweight. He can sew through 8 layers of heavy denim without a hiccup, and still make perfect stitches  He runs very smoothly. He is a member of the class known as Japanese Clones, i.e., clones of Singer machines.  Sometimes these are known as Singer-HA models.

I appreciate your will to sew such a complex outwear,
moreover when I compare it with my lack of enthusiasm in starting difficult sewing projects.
I ask myself what can motivate one toward such an achievement as yours?
You are an example for all of us.
