Just finished second of these for himself - it has invisible zip pockets, side pieces, a three piece sleeve - which I decided to topstitch - and a slightly shaped back hemline . Despite the name, fleece is only one of the fabric options. I used a cotton/lycra interlock which wasn't as easy to work with as the French terry I made the first one from, so lots of Wonder tape required. It fits well and the fabric is lovely and soft, and exactly the colour I hoped so we're both pleased. And he actually wears it :)

Of course now he wants another!

It's lovely @Vezelay, and the fact he wears it as you say is the best part!

Lovely @Vezelay and so nice when they wear what we’ve made.

DH has actually asked for something! A sweatshirt in a denim blue colour. I hope what I’ve ordered fits the bill.

Great job! I hope your man is proud to wear it.

Have you used this pattern company before? I have one of their women’s top patterns on my wish list.

I thought the same @Tamnymore in fact I was looking at the member pictures and I'm sure he was on one picture and thought then he looks  dishy.  Nothing wrong in looking @Vezelay  ;)

That company have a decent selection of patterns for men which is a bit of a rarity.

Thanks @Puzzler. I made their Mirri dress as a top a while back and also the Boxy Raglan which I wear a lot in the winter months - posted them both in my Members' Diaries I think. I'll just mention I had a problem with the pdfs - I've done dozens in the past but was never confused before by where to cut and stick the pages - too many line options. So I had the last two copyshop printed, less head scratching.

@Ploshkin yes, a rarity as you say. I bought their Draper polo shirt pattern on impulse last year - thanks for reminding me. It's far too easy to buy pdfs, file them and forget!

I've made a few tops of theirs and been very pleased with them.  The pdfs have guides for A4 and letter sized paper, but you can remove one of them by using the layers facility in Acrobat Reader - in fact you can remove the lines for any sizes that you don't want, too.

Having switched from a Mac with Acrobat Reader to a Windows 10 laptop, I was dismayed to learn that latter does not support the layers function. It's no longer my main device but I can turn on the Mac for tasks such as this. I've had my eye on the Harmony tunic but I have way too many patterns in the proverbial queue so I'll refrain...for now. :devil:

I will check out your diary, Vezelay.

Can't you install Acrobat Reader on your Windows 10 laptop?  That's what I'm using.
