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.
