Reversible Zippy Hoodie

Blog 035I finally did it.  I sewed a garment with a zipper in it.  It’s one of those things I’ve been putting off for no real reason other than it was learning a new skill.  I’ve sewn with zippers a ton just never in clothes before and let me tell you, it’s NOT that hard.

Blog 027It helps that I picked a pattern with seriously amazing instructions.  I used the Reversible Zippy Hoodie pattern by Kitschy Coo and I was really impressed.  It was one of those rare times when I sewed something brand new and didn’t stop at some point completely confused.

Blog 028My goal was to make Brayer a really warm hoodie.  I picked an extra thick sherpa fleece from Fabricland and lined it with a cotton jersey I think I got at a thrift store.  The result is a warm hoodie that is warm through the body and the sleeves.  I’m I the only one who gets annoyed when hoodies are lined through the body and not the sleeves?

Blog 033Brayer loves it. I loved sewing it and the end result is a high quality sweater that cost me under $10.  I’m happy.
