It is designed for sweatshirt fleece, fleece, french terry or other heavy knits. I used up-cycled sweatshirt fleece from hoodies from the sale rail at the charity shop and used a 94/6 Cotton Lycra for the cuffs, welt pockets and bottom bands. Due to the sewing of the 'v's and the welt pockets I would call this an intermediate pattern. It does take a while to sew but is totally worth the time and effort in my opinion. I made the 2T and the 4T and the only modifications I made from the pattern was to topstitch the 'V's
If the welt pocket is a little daunting to you, you could either omit them and/or do a traditional hoodie kangaroo pocket or follow the detailed 19 step instructions for doing them and give it a go! Maybe on a scrap piece first or on just the 'Front C' piece before you attach the B & A pieces, that way if it turns out great, you can still use it!
Fabrics are upcycled
