And now enjoy my little creation:
More details (pattern, fabric source, notes and mods) beyond the cut … and a cake!
Bad face day:
Name: Burberry Hoodie (a.k.a. ASBO chic)
Pattern: Simplicity 9513, view C (Pattern no longer available)
Size(s): Simplicity size 18
Fabric: “Burberry” Fleece
Fabric source: Cheapfabrics.co.uk
Modifications: I cut a size smaller than that suggested by the pattern, to give a more fitted look (it has 6″ of ease when finished, and that’s a bit too much for my tastes).
I also altered view C from a pullover to a jacket by not cutting the front piece on the fold and adding a centimetre to each side. I then created a facing and inserted a zip.
Notes: I love my chav jacket. It’s warm and snuggly and it’s a perfect birthday present to myself! Happy Birthday to me …. 😀
Some thumbnails of the details:

Here’s a view of the cake I made myself (it’s easier because I get what I want and I know what’s gone in it!)
Help yourself to a slice! 😀
