    My threenager is all about zip front jersey hooded tops. She also loves pink, and anything soft. I now accept that I’m better sewing her things she likes and will wear, as opposed to what I like. I’ve seen some cerise stretch velour which she would LOVE and would be very cosy for winter. In an attempt to get her to wear anything other than leggings I thought I’d make her some nature walk pants out of it. It then struck me that she would go nuts for one of those hideous ‘Juicy’ style tracksuits which were all the rage amongst z list celebs in the UK about ten years ago. Does anyone have any recommendations for a zip front hooded top that I could also make out of velour? Or an idea for a pattern hack which could work?

    Thank you!

    I suppose I could use the naturewalk top and forgo the hood?

    Would the new Lisette athletic pattern be too big for her? I think the jacket would work well in a knit: https://oliverands.com/lisette-patterns/OLV-B6386.html

    Maybe the Zonen09 Ole. Comes with button up or a zip variation (free download add-on).

    I have separately made the FT Raglan into both a zip-up front jacket and a pullover hoodie (using the hood from the School Days jacket) – I think it would probably be fairly straightforward to do them both together.
