Ellie and Mac Undercover Hoodie - Sewing a Color Blocked Kids Hoodie

It's hoodie weather! This energetic boy of mine is like a rabid rabbit running all over the place with his energy. If I try to slow him down, he will look at me with his big brown eyes like "What are you talking about?!" Sometimes I feel like we speak a different language, but thankfully, he still loves his momma and loves to sport the clothes that I make for him. 

Today for my blogpost, I am going to be sharing with you my version of the newly updated and re-released Ellie and Mac Undercover Hoodie Pattern. This is a unisex kids pattern (that also has an adult women's pattern counterpart) that has the sweetest details to make such a unique hoodie for someone special. 

The Undercover Hoodie pattern comes in sizes 12 months to Size 10. The pattern comes with a standard lined hood and cuffs with a fun pocket detail with faux piping. The construction is pretty genius and easy to do. The bottom has a casing that ties to one side. The pattern was updated with longer cuffs and to include a band option at the bottom if you do not want a tie. The sleeves have the option to be one single color or to have colorblocking. I felt like the fit was spot on for my little guy.

He initially told me that he did not like this hoodie when I had him try it on for fit photos, but he sweetly agreed to wear it for final photos if he could take it off afterwards.  He then got it out of the laundry the next day and wore it again. What changed? THAT POCKET! I wished you could see how quickly his expression changed when I showed him the pocket. He stuffed it full of dinosaurs and rocks and was beaming from ear to ear. 

The pocket on this hoodie is huge. It is the entire blue part on this shirt up until the side hem. He can stuff so many toys in it. I think I am going to start calling it his "explorer hoodie" because I am bound to find a frog in it if I don't watch out! When I take him on walks, he finds so many fun things!
