Kitschy Coo Reversible Zippy Hoodie

Myra has been in need of a new jacket, and since we had a cold snap here in Utah last week, I didn't have much time to knock something together.
Fortunately, the Kitschy Coo Reversible Zippy Hoodie goes together in a flash, so Myra didn't have a chance to get chilly at the playground. And you're in luck, since the Reversible Zippy Hoodie is one of the patterns you can get in the Sew Fab bundle! Only $29.99 for $200 worth of AMAZING patterns! Hurry over, the sale is only on for a week.
This is the third time I've made up this pattern (you can see the first two here and here) and I'm still amazed at how quickly and easily it comes together. I mean seriously, it's fully reversible with all seams enclosed and it only takes maybe 4 hours total to sew. So awesome.
Myra added her own touch to this one by designing and cutting out the pocket appliques. I'm pretty impressed with her creativity! As a bonus, the extra layer of fleece makes the pockets super warm.
You'll note she has her hands in them in all the pics. They are also lined with the fleece, so they're nice and soft.
The fabric for the shell is a fleece print that was given to me by a friend. The selvage says Joann. The lining and cuffs are interlock from Chez Ami. It's lovely stuff. Beefy and soft and an absolute dream to sew. I ordered the zipper from ZipperStop. I was really impressed how quickly it came. It only took two days to go from New York to Utah!
I made the 5Y size for Myra and the fit is great. I like that the length covers her backside and the waistband keeps the breezes out.
We both love how comfy the hood is. It fits her really well, and she has trouble with hoods in general. Big  brains, dontcha know.
Life on the playground can be tough, but Myra's ready to rock in her awesome hoodie!

  2. It seems like a winner pattern. My friend once said kids are more likely to eat veggies if they work in a garden. Do you think it works for clothing? More likely to wear it if they helped make it?

    1. So sorry I'm just answering this!! I actually used a #5 YKK plastic zip. It's a little chunkier, and more sturdy.
