Ollie Bomber Jacket Release!
Very excited to announce that the Ollie Bomber Jacket pattern is now available! It comes in sizes 12 months to 12 years and you have the option of making it fully lined, or leaving it unlined for a quick sew. There are also instructions for making welt pockets. If you use a reversible zipper you can even make it reversible.
A stable knit is recommended for the outer jacket, but some have used woven. I made the version above out of flannel with a cotton Lycra lining. I didn’t need to size up, buy my daughter is at the lower end of her size. You may want to make a version out of knit first, or size up if you do decide to go with a woven.
This was my first time having a pattern tested and I was so nervous sending it to the testers, but they were so awesome and were such a great help getting everything just right. And they came up with some really outstanding versions, which I’m excited to share with you!
