Modkid Brooklyn as a Zip Up

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Avery has been reaching for more pullovers and fleece jackets as the temperatures have dropped. The mock turtleneck style of the new Brooklyn pattern by Modkid makes it the perfect pattern to hack for a zip up jacket.

Combining french terry for the sleeves and fleece for the body results in a super cozy jacket. I sized up one pattern size to allow for an under layer while still keeping a slim profile. You will likely notice that the Brooklyn pattern is actually a dress, but changing up the cut line for the sheath dress makes for a great top.

I had originally wanted to create a quarter zip pullover, but when I pulled out these fabrics (leftovers from this and this), I knew I had the perfect separating zipper. Look close at that navy and red stripe running on either side of the zipper. So cool!

Head over to the Modkid Blog for the full tutorial on adding a zipper to the Modkid Brooklyn. Since the Brooklyn pattern comes in girls, tween/teen, and misses', you can make one for all the females in the house!
