Lay the two hood pieces RIGHT SIDES together. Pin and stitch the center seam allowance.
Repeat for the lining pieces.
Insert the lining into the main garment fabric RIGHT SIDES together.
Pin and stitch the outer hood seam allowance together and one side of the center front (the opposite to that intended to have the FRONT STAND applied).
Lay the lining and outer garment pieces RIGHT SIDES together.
Pin and stitch the armholes, hem and 1 center front as shown in the image.
Leave one CENTER FRONT seam allowance open to allow the stitching of the FRONT STAND in a later stage.
Clip and trim all seam allowances as shown in Step 1.
Turn RIGHT SIDES out and press gently.
Complete by adding the velcro to the FRONT STAND and center front of the opposite side. Sew the softer part of the velcro to the inward facing center front to help avoid the coarser part getting tangled in your pets fur.
Sew all around the inside of the velcro pieces to ensure they stay secure.
You may like to topstitch close to the seams all around the hem, center front, FRONT STAND, HOOD and armholes.
