I liked all of your pictures. They were very helpful.

Very nice. Great work responding to the zipper challenge. Kwiksew patterns tend to have good fleece-specific instructions if you need further guidance - although you seem to have it all figured out.

Great job on that!!! Very nice style. (I really should get that fleece book.) Thanks for all the information in the review as well.

Beautiful result. You made yourself a great pullover. Love the zipper insertion. A review to remember with all the tips for working with fleece.

You did a great job!! It really looks fantastic - and boy, whew! I went on a polar fleece sewing spring after a trip to Seattle Fabrics so I do know first hand - really sewing garments using actual patagonia fleece is not easy.

Great looking pullover. I love your tip on how to install the zipper in fleece using FOE. Thanks!

What a great result! Nice work with the zipper. I'd like to try that technique the next time I sew some activewear.

What an excellent use of an old favourite RTW. Both these tops look comfortable and practical, and all the little finishing details on your green top lift it out of the ordinary. I'm going to borrow your idea of finishing fleece edges with FOE.

What a spectacular pullover! People are going to try to buy it right off your back. And what a great solution to the challenge of inserting the zipper. Thanks for sharing your sources and your techniques.

Just an outstanding result... what a way to inspire all of us how to get EXACTLY what we want using good old SIY Sew It Yourself. Your fabric choice really sings with the design. Way to go!
