Alex Sweatshirt

Another pattern test for SUCO by Susana!
This time it is the Alex Sweatshirt that I sewed for one of my boys. 
The pattern is a unisex pattern with some great options.

Some of the options include color blocked or solid front and sleeves, a hood or neckband, kangaroo pocket, waistband or elastic waist, cropped or regular length, lined or unlined hood. 
Wow! Even writing that I get excited about all the options available and the ability to mix and match those options. 

The pattern includes instructions for finishing the neckband/hood seam so that there is no exposed seam in the back for the neckband and all around for the hood option. 
There is also separate pattern pieces for using ribbing or regular knit for the neckband and waistband so you don't have to go searching high and low for ribbing that will match. 
I used a bamboo sweatshirt fleece for the main and a thin jersey for the lining, cuffs, waistband, and drawstrings.

My son is thrilled with the sweatshirt and I'm excited to have a pattern with so many options that I can sew for both my boys and girls in sizes 12 months to 14 years. 
I think I could even fit into the size 14 so this pattern covers almost the whole family here.
