Installing the zipper can be confusing and I still haven’t figured it out for certain. I cannot figure out why the pattern calls for a 26” zipper when the jacket will use 22” at best. This through me for a loop. Additionally if you are still not perfect with your seam allowances, (like me) your seams will not line up. And since I flat welted all my seams I cannot take the jacket apart to re-sew them. Fortunately I have enough fabric to start over.
I think the instructions could be clearer and more detailed/pictures in the I stalling the zipper section.
This jacket has been a test of my novice abilities, however by doing so, it has taught me new skills, and a new level of patience.
Haven’t re-started the project and it’s a gift for my mother.
I have just recently made this hoodie. What a fabulous pattern. This is the first time I have made a sweatshirt that isn't too big, too baggy with the sleeves not been too full or too long. I did take the sleeves up by an inch but that was the only alteration. Thank you for the fantastic drafting. I will definitely be making this again.
The pattern produces a well made hoodie that the recipient thought was store bought! The quality of garment showed. May make a few tweaks and increase the body length. Perhaps next time I won’t sew the pocket on upside down. Sigh.
I made the pullover version of the Stanton Hoodie in a size 16 EF with no alterations. I was happy with how the final project turned out. The fit was good. I definitely will try the zip version. Thanks for great patterns.
As with all Cashmerette patterns, the fit was spot on right out of the envelope. I made the pullover version and love it! The directions were easy to follow and and now I have a fabulous hoodie. I definitely recommend this pattern.
