Thank you 5oo4 for designing patterns that are as much fun to sew as to wear! The drawings and videos made the zipper installation easy. I want to make all the versions!

The fit of this pattern is spot on. It makes a huge difference that it includes the full bust piece. It really speeds up the time from pattern assembly to cutting fabric. The assembly was fairly quick but without the video for the zipper, I don’t think the printed instructions would have been enough. Even with following, the zipper didn’t line up like the video depicted but I made it work. I do like the zipper feature as sometimes hoodies are snug to get over the head and this make it less work to put on.
