So I thought about my boys and what they like - well they love hoods, and they love things with pockets, and they love zippers. Voila: Zip Up Hoodie Vest!
Asher loves his so so much ;o)
This version is actually reversible since I did a full lining. The arm bindings I did bias style so that there is a clean finish inside and out.
To make this a zip up, I simply cut the front in two pieces rather than on the fold.... the one thing I forgot was to add seam allowance for the zipper.... oops, luckily Ash is a skinny monkey, so it is all good. I also left the front neck line at the original height, but I think in a future one for Bex, I might raise it up a bit, as the drop scoop neck is perfect for girls, but no quite as perfect for boys.
I am so happy with how this turned out!!! I used two Euro knits from Mabel Madison (can those mustaches and top hats be any cuter!?!?!?) for the outside, and then lined the garment with a thicker interlock for a bit more warmth and stability.
*note - the android galaxy does not quite fit in these pockets ;op I have such a technology addict on my hands - and no, that phone is not his, it is his fathers....but he sure thinks it is his!
