As part of the Kid's Clothes Week Challenge, I made the Urban Unisex Hoodie by Heidi and Finn. I made a Size 3T, and plan on making a smaller version for my littlest man as well.
I LOVE THIS PATTERN. It is a super value for the cost! It is adorable and totally versatile. The only thing I changed about the pattern was to use a rib knit fabric for the bottom trim and the sleeve cuffs.
The outer fabric is a sweatshirt fleece, and the lining fabric is a gray interlock. When I make it again, I probably won't use a fabric as heavy as sweatshirt fleece again. Some of the seams are really bulky and were difficult to get through my machine, especially while attaching the bottom trim. If I had used the sweatshirt fleece for the trim, like the pattern calls for, I could have never gotten it under my presser foot, because when sewing on the bottom trim, you are sewing through FOUR layers of your outer fabric and two layers of lining fabric.
My favorite thing about this pattern? The sleeves fit the shoulders perfectly - no easing required. Just pin and sew. LOVE that.
The only problem I ran into was sizing. I made the 3T, and it doesn't fit my 2T boy. There is some possibility that I printed the patterns wrong, but I still will be sizing up in future versions of the pattern, and I would DEFINITELY size up if you are using a woven rather than knit fabric.
So, this version will be heading to the closet for Sawyer in a year or two, and a new, bigger version for Quinn will be made soon!
