Sewing Level: Intermediate

My mods: HACKED in to a 1/4 zip pullover like the one pictured on the thumbnail. Cutting video gives detailed how-to.

Description: I'm using the base of this Pullover to create a 1/4 zip pullover. I also experiment with ways to sew the center front zipper a few ways using machines we have.

Notes: While I deviated from the style a bit for this pattern, I wanted to remain true to the idea of an outdoor fleece pullover sewn in the style of ready-to-wear. I wanted it to look store bought through and through (not that that is usually very important to me but it's a great challenge for this style zip closure).

I spent some quality time experimenting and trying a few techniques using just my straight stitch and serger. It came out amazing and honestly exceeded my expectations!
