5 out of 4 Fleece Pullover Blog tour

IMG_3611

This week, I am excited to share with you the 5 out of 4 Fleece pullover! I have started sewing more for my little guy, but have had a hard time picking patterns and prints that reflect his style. Yep, at 2 1/2, he already knows what he likes and has no problem telling us! He loves to dress “just like Daddy!” which means jeans and a tee shirt. I debated sewing one of these for myself, and as soon as I pulled out the tub of fleece, he ran over and grabbed this TMNT fleece and told me “I love this momma!” I knew then that I could make this for him!

He loves TMNT, and just recently received this chair, so he was thrilled that we took it outside for some pictures!

The pattern comes with layers, which makes printing super easy! There are plenty of option within the pattern as well- pockets, color blocking, and zippered pockets!

I sewed up the children’s version, which covers sizes 2-18. There are separate patterns for both men and ladies available as well. I can’t wait to get some more fleece and make these for the whole family!

I struggled with my zipper a bit, and after talkign with the designer, I am ordering some wonder tape (which she recommends in the pattern) for my next one! I love that she uses a knit facing for the zipper which also covers the zipper, reducing the “itchy” factor for little ones! I followed the size chart for his chest measurement and the fit is spot on. I think next time, I will go up a size for this guy, as this one fits just perfect, and I like to have some growing room!

Be sure to check the logs below all throughout the week as we share our visions for this awesome pattern! Check out the 5 out of 4 Facebook page throughout the week as well, They are heading towards their 1 year anniversary, and I know she has some fun planned!

When I set out to work on this tour, I figured I would be sewing a dress or a skirt for my daughter. She is almost 13, so I always ask her opinion on things now..go figure, the one dress she loved and really wanted, she is just out of the size range! I didn’t have time to upsize it for her in time, so I decided to make my 2 yr old a Jackson Raglan.

I traded fabric with a sewing friend back in July and in my bag was this awesome toothless knit. My daughter used some to make a dress for herself, but I had plenty left over! I paired it with a solid green for some color.

As you can clearly see, he loves the hood! He kept pulling it over his eyes and asking “Where I go?”

I made him the size 1/2 based on his measurements and it was a perfect fit!

I will be sourcing some more awesome boy knits to make him some more!
