I'd never installed a zipper before so had been holding off on this pattern. But, Amy's directions are very clear and it is definitely not as hard as it looks! Take the plunge, you'll get great professional-looking results and it's practical for kids of all ages.

Prior to this I had sewn a zipper exactly once and was a little nervous about the separating zipper. I used twill outer and jersey lining, so it was a combo of woven and knit. It turned out so cute and it wasn't hard at all. (I based the zipper on with glue stick to keep it lined up, and that made it incredibly easy to line up. ) The only thing I would change when I did it again is the trim/cuffs. I used ribbed knit instead of the elastic casing and it was hard to keep lined up, it ended up a tad wonky on the bottom trim because of the stretch and the zipper. I would probably use the same type of woven I used for the outer of the jacket instead. It is a great little lightweight jacket, and I think you could even use fleece or sweatshirt fleece as a liner to make it warmer. I will definitely be making more of these!

I sew most of my boys' clothes & this jacket, by far receives the most compliments of all the everyday wear I make. It fits perfect, was easy to sew, the directions were fantastic! I used boardshort fabric for the outer layer to make it somewhat like a rain jacket & a cotton woven that had some Lycra in it for the lining. It's a perfect change of season jacket!

I thought this was going to be harder than it was. It was challenging but in a fun way. I'm still fairly new to zippers and it wasn't that bad. I used PUL for outer and interlock for inner and it turned out cute. Clear instructions, good sizing. I used the 6 width and 5 length so she could use it as a raincoat.

I made this when I was quite new to sewing. It looks like it would be difficult to sew but it really isn't. Amy's instructions and photos make it so simple to follow along even for a newbie! This pattern is really versatile in the different fabric combos you can use to make a perfect fit jacket for whatever weather!
