I had forgotten all about posting my May challenge!
Zips. May was all about zips. I did get one put in, and was happy with the end result. Though I did try to be clever and had to do some un-picking, as my clever-ness was off-set with extremely wonky top stitching. Lesson learnt :)
The pattern is Otto #28 3/2003, in the jacket version. Fabric was from Crafty Mama's. And it was a birthday present for a lovely 7 year old this past weekend. I am very happy that our friends kids love my handmade clothes as much as our kids do. It is a smidge big on the birthday boy, but he will grow and it should still fit him for the start of next winter.
I didn't realise the pictures were so bad - oops! Should've checked them before giving the jacket away.
