As a relative beginner I wasn’t sure I could successfully make this hoodie. I chose size 7. I extended the seam allowances before I started because 1/4” is too tight a margin with my skill set. I also chose a 17” chunky plastic zip. The construction is really clever and I learned a lot from the detailed instructions. I didn’t have any trouble following them, but they do need to be read carefully and for the zip I had to look really closely at the images to make sure I had everything lined up the way it needed to be. The 17” zip was a bit long but I managed. There are instructions included for how to shorten a metal zip, but mine was plastic so 16” zip would have been better. I’m really pleased with the result and so is my 7 year old. My only word of warning is if you’re a beginner consider putting the top of the zip 1/2” lower than instructed. There’s a lot of seams and things coming together at the neckline and as a beginner you might need a bit more wriggle room.
Easy to follow instructions.
I love the pattern.its my first pattern that require zipper.So easy to follow.My suggestion is that I hope there is a total amount of fabric required so that it would be easy for pricing the finished product and also the option not to put linning on the arm. I’ve been thinking of it how to sew without lining the arm.
Great to down load and paste together this pattern. I’ve just received my mail order fabric, can’t wait to get started
This pattern is so well explained that my first zipper, ever, looks like it was store-bought. My little one wears it every time we leave the house and its nicely sized hood is perfect for blustery winter weather. I made mine with luscious stretch minky and faux chinchilla lining in the hood. It’s like a hug in a coat!
