Zipper in the Nature Walk pullover collar?

    Has anyone tried to place a zipper in the top? Like a typical fleece pullover. I am thinking of placing one in the “v” section and extending up the collar. So when zipped the collar stands up. Does that make sense? Just wondering before I start practicing this morning. Thanks!

    Jill, I did just this when I made my Evel Knievel jumpsuit, and I’m sure Jessica did the same with her Beat It jacket. Both are on the blog if you search for those key words.
    To make it work I think you’ll need to take out the V though, as otherwise it would pull badly (and pucker at the bottom) when it’s closed. If you fill in the V part then you will need to lengthen the collar by the same amount each side.
    Good luck.

    Yes, I made one adding a zip to the V. I also turned the facing to the right side. https://www.flickr.com/photos/73669617@N07/12869902534/

    Thank you! Great job on both. I found a link with some pretty good instructions that I will post in case anyone else wants to try this. I have just made a muslim, but so far it seems to be working. The zipper extends up into the collar. I have only had to rearrange a few of the steps in the pattern and alter the pattern slightly to make it work. Thanks again for the inspiration to try!
