reloaded the pictures for the tutorial ---->


note: make sure your serger or sewing machine will go trough at least 5 layers of fleece, otherwise you won't get there...

Just take a basic pattern of a sweater or hoodie an cut up the front part like this:

I numbered the pieces (hope you can read that). you will have to cut 1x nr 1, 1x nr 2 and 1x nr 2+3.
I'm gonna make this one with a zipper, so I only needed a little extra fabric where the zip would come, but make sure you add enough at the side where you're buttonholes are going to be when you are going to use buttons! tadaa...

the rest of the pattern is just a basic sweater model...and this is what your collar should look like. make sure you put the GOOD sides facing each other when you us two different colors like I did!

you'll also need some long pieces like this...

ok, so let's start to put it togetter... I did the colored edges at the sleeves and front part etc first

pin the two left frontpannels togetter and then sew them. start at the top end turn at the point from where you want to leave the pocket open. It should look triangly...

ok now put you're sweater togetter. i finish of the sleeves like this so it looks clean. tye a knot in the end of the treads and cut of the rest... (ignore this when you're not using a serger)

sew and turn your collar do not forget to sew the arrow along with it if you want an arrow to come out of your collar

Put in the zipper or the buttonclosing (do not forget to put a piece of non stretching fabric or that thing you have to iron on (dunno how you call that in english) if you are going to make buttonholes in stretchy fleece!!).I used a clip for the collar this time...I took some leftovers of the purple fabric to make the ribbons.


and again:

do not use this pattern to make stuff to sell! personal use only

I really love that fleece jacket. It's a really nice shape!

I love that orange colour on the first one Smiley  Very bright.  And I LOVE the fabric of the second one!  And the design looks very original!  I love the swooping pocket and everything.  Very awesome!  Wow!  Look at all the awesome stuff people are making with fleece!  I didn't think it was possible!
