Hooray for a boy pattern!! I love sewing twirly, ruffly things for my main girl, but I do feel like the boys get left out of the sewing fun lot. And that makes me sad! So I’m always thrilled when I have the opportunity to test a boy pattern! Between the amazing design & huge size range, this is one boy pattern (unisex, really) that will not disappoint!
Sizes 6-12 months through 16
Cool “V” shaped color blocking all around
Optional Welt Pockets
Optional hood lining
Print by Layers feature
I am so obsessed with this hoodie! The style is absolutely perfect, and Terra’s patterns are always so thorough with great instructions that will walk you through the whole process! I tested the 12-18 months size on my big almost-10-month-old baby. (Please stop growing up so fast!!) I left off the drawstring for safety purposes since he is just a baby. And I must confess that I have never done welt pockets before! I usually like my projects to be super simple and quick, but putting a little time in to the details can really pay off! And I would have to say in this case, they paid off big-time! I just love every single detail about this design. I think JJ likes it, too!
I just want to note how hard it is to photograph a curious and mobile baby! He was NOT impressed by my shenanigans and was only interested in crawling around to explore the outside world! But man is he cute! I may be biased, but I’m just slightly obsessed with this guy! He has everyone in our family wrapped around his chubby little finger.
The turquoise fabric I used for my tester version is Sweater Fleece from Hancock Fabrics. The light grey is a basic French Terry and the Charcoal Grey is micro fleece. You could put together so many amazing fabric combinations with this pattern, and you can use many different types of fabric as well! With the huge size range included in this pattern, I will be using this for all 3 of my kids for a long, long time! Make sure you are a member of Terra’s Treasures Facebook Group to see tons of awesome tester inspiration!
And of course…. the release SALE! The Elevation Hoodie pattern is on sale for $7 through Monday, Feb 29, 2016!
This pattern is easily worth the full price, but do yourself a favor and grab this pattern during the sale. You will be glad you did!
