How to Make an 1/4 zipper Pullover

n.jpg

Hello Everyone! First of all, I am amazed of how well this turned out! This was my first 1/4 zipper pullover. And it’s getting cold out, but not cold enough to pull out one of those heavy duty jackets. Shopping for one of these, I found a lot of overpriced ones. Soooo, I thought it would be better to make one. This is a pretty quick project. And I didn’t use a pattern. I made one from my mother’s jacket and then downsized the pattern to fit my measurements. I used, 1 1/2 yards of a fleece like fabric and a 7 inch zipper.

5. Put the sleeves aside. Take the side piece and front and back pieces. Sew them all together. The front piece, when pinned, should look like this.

VOILA! I hope you enjoyed this post! It was pretty easy and simple. You don’t necessarily have to follow the instructions I gave, because you can really do it any way you want to. There are so many different styles. This took me 2 days. It is a little harder than most of my previous ones. But the outcome is great!

 

HAVE A FASHIONABLE DAY!
