So I was looking for a stylish sweatshirt for those days when a coat is too much. I used a basic raglan sweatshirt pattern and a circle skirt and serged the seams and darts. I then installed a high collar inspired by many a sci-fi movie. Then installed an exposed zipper.  It was a pretty quick project and not expensive.

4 yards of fleece, 1 zipper
About 3.5 hours worth the work mostly in drafting the pattern.

You know, normally an exposed zipper is not my thing, but for this, it REALLY sets off the exposed stitching, and works well with the entire thing, which looks AWESOME!  I love the collar!
