I've made the hoodie and slim line sweatpants several times now, and I have made some adjustments that make me happier with the pattern as a whole. It's not perfect... but I would purchase from this designer again since I was able to make the needed changes and was then happy with the pattern and process.
My son really wanted a boy doll for Christmas, so I turned an Emerson into Nathan for him. I decided to make the Rough N' Tumble Hoodie as the finishing touch for his outfit. I found some green sweater knit that had black in it. It reminded me of the Creepers in Minecraft, which he loves, so I made a Creeper hoodie for him!
I was honored to be able to test this pattern in the 18" doll size and I loved it, so I couldn't wait to try this pattern. As I expected, it went together perfectly and fit the little Wellie Wishers very well. It is so adorable on the dolls. And, it's easy to sew - great instructions and pics to follow. After learning the "EASY" way to insert a zipper from this pattern, I will never go back to the old way again. You don't even need a zipper foot!! I'll be making more of these for sure!
I thought this pattern might be a bit tricky when looking at, at first and a zipper. (zippers can be overwhelming for me). I couldn't have been more wrong. A very fun project and doesn't take that long. I have sewn 3 jackets so far. I can see many more in my future. The instructions are easy to follow and so well written, and with the step by step pictures it is a winner in my book. No more fear of zippers. I love the fit on the doll too. Pair up with her Skinny pants its a real winner.
