Recently I asked people what kind of patterns they’d like to see on the Facebook page. There were a lot of requests for jackets (and for 1/3 dolls, which is why I did that size last week), so I tried to see what I could do to accommodate! As an unexpected result, I ended up with TWO patterns for this week:
OMG! A BOY PATTERN?!
I know, I said I wasn’t doing those anymore. However, I never said I wasn’t doing unisex patterns anymore! When I started out this pattern, I thought I’d be able to do that: Back when I did the Letter Jacket/Hoodie pattern, it worked equally well on guys and gals. But that was using stretchy jersey fabric to make clothes that aren’t supposed to look especially tailored. The boy patterns technically fit the girls (not quite so well vice versa), but they don’t look right. If I wanted to make a bunch of jacket patterns that really looked good on boys and girls, I’d have to make pattern sets for boys and girls. I didn’t realize this until Thursday morning or so, which suddenly tacked on an extra day or so of work late in the week, which is why instead of publishing on Friday morning like usual, I pulled about 12 hours on Thursday, Friday morning, and then published mid Friday.
(And a couple of extra hours setting up this shot. I couldn’t help myself)
So you can pick that up along with the Girl Jacket pattern in the shop! It comes in 3 different styles with 2 different lengths. Enjoy 🙂
