as there seems to be a problem with the first upload, I’ll try again:
I made this about a year ago; a nice and warm fleece jacket.
It’s perfect when the evenings turn cold and even when it’s below zero, you don’t need to wear much more than a t-shirt underneath.
It’s not lined, but there are pockets hidden in the seam between the purple and the gray parts. That way I always have a safe place for my key.
I think the pattern I used was Lydia.
A plain jacket seemed boring, so I drew a few designs and altered the pattern accordingly. I added a collar that can be closed with verlcro and I also wanted to have those long sleeves with thumb holes.
There were quite a few changes, so I made a muslin before I put everything together.
The only thing I’m not sure about is the material I used for the pockets.
30 select jacket and coat patterns are now marked down to $3.99.
