Kwik Sew 3570 for Father and Son

Gift completed #2 was a matched set of fleece pullovers for my Dad and brother.
This is one of my favorite man patterns!  It's Kwik Sew 3570, and designed for activewear.  It makes a great casual pullover.  I've made it a couple of times for Mitch as well, and he loves it.  It is nicely shaped, comfortable and quick to sew.
Here you can see the side seams, which angle forward.  It creates a very flattering, slimming line.  The zipper insertion is actually pretty easy - thank you Kwik Sew for clear and concise directions with good diagrams!  I made these out of a lightweight fleece.  Here in Texas, we don't need much cold weather gear, but this is light enough for cool winter and spring days.  My brother also spends a lot of time riding motorcycles, and I thought this would be great for layering under his leather when it's cold.
I put it on my dress form to give you a better idea of what it looks like on a person.  Clearly, it is too big for me!  But it looks pretty good!  Maybe I should make a smaller one for me...
