Pattern Update


A few weeks ago I made the Urban Unisex Hoodie by Heidi and Finn but when I posted about the pattern I had not yet tried it on for fit. I just wanted to give you an update in case you want to make this top but not sure of the fit/sizing. I know some of you are more hesitant about the pattern fit for smaller pattern companies. I made this in a size 2 for Cenzo (17 months old). There is room to grow so I think the sizing is accurate.


 The hood fit nicely even though he can't stand wearing anything on his head so it's a miracle I even got these two photos. I think I may not even make it with the band on the bottom next time. It can also be made into a cardigan style sweater that opens in the front with some minor sewing changes. Overall I'm totally happy with this pattern. The size range is 6m-5T and no tracing because it's a PDF. Yay! I wish it went a little larger so I could make one for Luca but I'm thinking it may not be too difficult to make it into a size 7? Maybe that's pushing it. I am no pattern drafter. To see some other cute versions of this hoodie visit Laura's Blog. Laura also had great results with this pattern and this was her first go around with an independent pattern company.

I love your striped hoodie! That color combo is adorable. I love that Heidi and Finn pattern too. I sewed one in the fall http://kdmullen.blogspot.com/2010/09/kcwc-day-2.html
and would like to make another. I really like how the pdf patterns can be printed out in larger sizes so easily (unlike printed patterns where you would need to trace to preserve them). I've had very good luck with DMK pdf patterns as well.
You make the cutest outfits, thanks for the inspiration.

I've been thinking on this and it may actually be sized a little small. I forget that I have big kids. A size two is probably better suited to an 18-24 month size. Maybe. I dunno.

Super cute!

I think we all just need to measure our kiddos before choosing the size to make. :)
That was always my issue before I started designing patterns. I would just look at the age and not the measurements. :)

Thanks for the update. I bought this pattern after reading your earlier blog post (so nice to see cute patterns for boys as well as girls) and it's on my list for Winter sewing.
