This weekend I had the opportunity to sew up Ellie & Mac’s Kid’s version of the Zip It Jacket! The little could use another jacket, and one with a hood is even better! This pattern was perfect.
The pattern can be found here and is part of their Wacky Wednesday sale and is only $1 today! Grab it while you can!
This was my first time sewing a clothing item with lining AND a zipper! The instructions in this pattern are very clear, and I had no problems following along. I would definitely recommend this pattern to start with if you are looking for projects to tackle either skill for the first time!
The outer fabric is from Blended Thread Fabrics. The fabric is a great quality Cotton/Lycra blend, and was from a preorder a few rounds ago. Definitely one of my favorite fabrics that I’ve been trying to squeeze out as many projects as possible!
The inner fabric is from Boho Fabrics. The fabric is a soft Bamboo/Cotton blend French Terry found here. I had originally bought it for some hoodies, but I have found that I like it better as a liner fabric than a main fabric. I used it on some Christmas gifts as the liner in some neck warmers as well!
The zipper is from Joann. I think I bought the 18″ and had to trim it down a couple of inches.
Overall, I enjoyed working on this project! I won’t say it was quick, as this was my first time with two new techniques AND I was jumping between three machines and my iron… but I will be making more! The best part? The Zip it Jacket pattern is offered in women’s and men’s sizing, too!
As always, let me know if you have any questions or comments! Thanks for stopping by!
