Leave the opening on the bottom edge, it's neater and if your sewing isn't very neat it's less visable there, and don't forget to snip all corners and curved edges before turning right side out.
Easiest by machine is to make two hoods, then place one into the other right sides facing each other. Then sew around most of the way leaving a few inches somewhere hidden to turn the two parts right sides out - you have to reach into the opening to pull one fabric out of the other. Then you sew the opening shut by hand. This is called bag lining.

- You seem to have a grasp of the general concept. I would do it this way: make two hoods, exactly the same except for different fabrics.

Place them with right sides together and machine stitch the curved edge/shoulder openings together. Then turn them right sides out and press the shoulder edge. The face opening edge will be easier to do last because it is essentially a straight seam. I would just press the edges of both layers of the hood to their respective inside, and then pin and topstitch the face edge. You could also whipstitch it by hand. Save whipstitching a curved seam for when you have a little more experience.

How exactly do I go about lining it? Do I make an identical hood out of the lining material and stuff them inside each other, turning over the edges of the face opening and the shoulder cape to secure them together? Do I line each piece of the hood individually? Forget the whole thing, go out for a coffee and leave the hood-making to more experienced sewers? *laughs*
