A really cozy-looking top. Thanks for all the information about the fit of the pattern; this is helpful.

well, it sure does fit well, so all those alterations wore worth the effort. congratulations, I know how hard it can be to get a nice fit when you are tall.

Your jacket is quite attractive. I am trying to imagine how it would look if you hadn't made the alterations. According to your profile, your a little taller than average! I have to add length to every pattern I make, and I am only 5'8". Anyway, good job on the hoodie!
