MacPhee # 420

My first project of the year was this fleece jacket for my husband Bill.
I made it the first week of January, but just did not have the time to post till now.
The Pattern is MacPhee # 420 -No Sweat Shirt. I used red/white fleece, which I bought on line from MacPhee Workshop - Edmonton. I made the full zip front with side inseam pockets. Bill didn't want the maple leaf applique sewn on the front or back of his jacket.. It is unlined and to finish the seam allowances, I serged them......very easy and quick.
I've made this jacket many times before. I've made the pullover variation and the full zip front variation and every time it turns out perfect. The jacket is casual and very comfortable.
Overall it's really just a nice, simple pattern, no surprises and easy to follow instructions.

Hi Diana. Bill loves these fleece jackets.They are perfect for wearing around the house especially during these cold days we've been having.
When I walked in there was a long line at the tables, I didn't think I'd get to talk to you much, so it was nice it settled down for a bit :)
(I really loved your jeans.)

Ann .- this jacket is great. I am sure that her husband was enchanted. I like the combination of white and red. here in Spain do not have custom clothing such as they are too warm for the weather. Well, congratulations on a jacket so practical and so well done.

hugs, Paco

Very nice, Ann! These kind of jackets are really popular in my town but in maroon and gray (school colors).
