Last week I was able to test the Denali Fleece Jacket pattern by GYCT. This was a very quick sew with great results. If you have been looking for a simple jacket pattern for the fall weather this pattern is for you! The pattern will be available on Thursday on Craftsy and Etsy.
- The sizing range is 12-14 month all the way up to size 12
- appropriate for both girls and boys
- 3 different design options for the body of the jacket to chose from. (color blocked, one gathered, or one piece)
- The hood is lined with knit for a nice finished look.
- The pattern calls for either snaps or buttons as a front closure.
- optional side pockets available
- two hood options (two and three pieced)
Prepping the pattern
- Printing the pattern – The pattern fit together very nicely. She uses half diamonds on the horizontal and vertical sides of the pages to fit them together with ease.
- cutting the pattern – Each size is color coded and very easy to distinguish from the other sizes. There is an easy to read guide listing each sizes color and marking scheme.
- pattern pieces – There are not many pieces to the pattern. The different front options are clearly marked on the pattern pieces as are the basic cutting directions.
Sewing the Jacket
This jacket sewed up very quickly. I used my serger for most of the seams with the exception of the side seams and the top stitching. The directions are very clear and provide many photos of each step. All the pieces fit together perfectly. I really do think it took less time to sew than it did for me to prep the pattern pieces!
My daughter and I were very happy with the end results. The jacket fits her well and has plenty of room to layer this fall. She is already planning a second one for me to sew for her soon!
