Melissa does it again...and again and again. My DS has outgrown B&T, and I cannot, in words, tell you how much sadness that brings me. Do I still grade to fit? Of course I do, but what do I do until (if?) God blesses us with child #2?
In comes SS, the adult answer to B&T. Melissa's blocks are incredible, never leaving out us big-boobied gals! All of the patterns are blank slates, waiting for mashups, trims, and hacks galore.
I made this one like the original B&T zip-up, omitting the hood, but adding inseam pockets. I want to make one lined, with facings, which will be super easy to draft.
Ever pattern designer has made her hoodie a raglan. That, to me, makes a FBA much more difficult. This is exactly why I chose Mel's pattern, besides the fact she's a genius.
Now, if only we can talk her in to a kid's size range... ;-)
Love this hoodie, well worth the money. Very easy to follow pattern and instructions. Will definitely be getting more!
Very easy and very nice pattern!
Your pattern and explanations are really great. After having done a hoodie for my kids, i wanted also one for me ;-)
