    One is not enough

    Made the hoodie version recently in 100% organic cotton sweatshirt fleece. My measurements are approx 36-30-40 (narrow shoulders, flat belly, big butt). I'm also 5'6" with pretty average torso/length lengths. Based on finished garment measurements I made a straight medium. Fit is a bit looser than shown on model so I might size down in the future, especially if using a fabric with more horizontal stretch. Pattern pieces go together beautifully and instructions are great, like you'd expect from this company. I love that the bottom band is same width as bottom of jacket, no snug band catching on my bum, hooray. The zipper instructions didn't work great for me, not sure if it's my (lack of) skills, my zipper foot,or what, but I got a better outcome using another method. I also swapped the sleeve cuffs for thumbhole cuffs from another pattern in my stash. Mine's in white for dog walking in the dark, but I've been grabbing for it daily since finishing so I'd best get on with another one in a darker color. Thanks for the great pattern, will be making multiples!

    I got the whole thing together with no "do-overs", fabulous directions. I added some length for camouflage and it worked out just as I hoped. I plan to do another in a heavier sweatshirt material now that I can see the fit. All my neighbors are jealous.

    Easy to make, easy to wear.

    I love this pattern. It was fun to sew and even more fun to wear. I dressed it up with a grey light weight sweater knit in the view B, pullover version. I added some decorative stitching on the sleeve and shoulder in a gold rayon thread. The directions were easy to follow. It stitched up quickly with the hem and sleeve bands. The fit is nice with the back sloping cut giving extra coverage in the rear and the raglan sleeves. I am looking forward to making the zip up hoodie version.
