Since Spring Break is near I was wanting to make a fun color jacket for my girls. We will be going to the beach and maybe to Disney one day and might need this.
I had lots of lime green minky dot fabric. This hoodie takes a lot of fabric!
I used a hoodie my daughter had from Old Navy as a guide. Then I peeked at a Simplicity pattern for instructions. I love using another piece of clothing they have as a pattern. It makes me so much more confident as I am constructing it that it is going to have the proper fit. And it did!
I was bummed I couldn't get a separating zipper that was lime green. They had lots of plain zippers lime green but not separating. I made the off-white one work as best as I could. 18" plastic teeth zippers only come in the most basic colors: red, white, black, forest green, royal blue, and off-white. Who knew? So proud of this - my first jacket attempt ever! Tried to cover up the zipper as much as possible.
She has worn it all day long.
