This week’s project had many firsts, so I thought it would be a good idea to blog it! Made my first Bomber Jacket, made welt pockets for the first time, installed a separating zipper for the first time, and added an iron on patch to a garment for the first time! So let’s jump right into it:
Pattern Description: – The Ollie Bomber Jacket
The Ollie Bomber Jacket is a PDF sewing pattern that is perfect for boys or girls. This jacket is intended for sturdy knits such as French terry, Liverpool, and sweatshirt fleece. You have the option of making it fully lined and reversible with welt pockets, or for a quick sew there are also instructions on how to leave it unlined. Includes a free hood . The Ollie now comes with a free hood pattern included with your download!
Pattern Sizing: Sizes 12 month to 12 years. I made a size 5.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern once you were done sewing it? YES
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. I did youtube a couple videos to get a better understanding of welt pockets just to be sure I knew what I was doing.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.
What did you dislike about the pattern? Not a thing.
- Outer: Rainbow Unicorn French Terry from Raspberry Creek Fabrics found HERE. & Lilac with White Polka Dots French Terry found HERE.
- Inner Lining: Purple Minky Fabric that was once a blanket. lol
- Adorable Unicorn Patch from Joann’s Crafts and Fabric IN STORE (I cannot find it online)
Where can I find this pattern? You can find the Ollie Bomber Jacket HERE. There is also a women’s version of this pattern I’m considering getting for myself! You can find that HERE. Or the BUNDLE of both patterns HERE.
Would you make this pattern again? Absolutely! The pattern includes options for heavy or light weight jackets so it’s a great all year round pattern because we always need some sort of jacket in Cali. Plus, she loves how “cool” it makes her feel and has already asked for more versions! Next version I’ll make will have a hoodie.
Anything you would do differently? Yes, next time I will definitely add stabilizer in the neck armbands and hem for a more sturdy look and feel.
Here are some more action shots!
And that’s it for todays post guys! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a safe and wonderful weekend! xoxo
