Kids Zip It Jacket Pattern
I used sweater material for the outer and cotton Lycra for the inner. I guess it's reversible so there really isn't a liner but that's the way my son wanted it. As a super beginner I had a lot of firsts with this make but it was a great learning experience. Diana's video tutorials make patterns accessible to all - even if it does have zips (gasp! Lol). One thing I would say is that even though my son measure in 3 different sizes I made it according to the largest measurement (height) and it was a perfect fit. I am loving all my E&M patterns and look forward to making many more. Thank you for a well drafted pattern!
I made this jacket for my 3 year old son and he loves it. I struggled with the zipper but only because I am not sure how to get close to the plastic end stopper.
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.
