Heidi and Finn hoodie- new sizing??

Post by mama anne » Sat Apr 13, 2013 7:16 pm

Hey ladies.
Does anyone know what the new sizing of the Heidi and Finn hoodie means/is about?
I have the older version of the pattern and need to make a size 5...

Seems they have altered the sleeves and added an inch square for printing and some info about fabric. I wonder if I can get hold of a new copy - blog says it expired 6 April. Too bad I just seen it

:lol: I can't remember its been a while since I made one.

I have emailed them asking if there is a chance of getting the updated pattern, so will let you know what they say.

Dug out pattern....looks like I've made a size 3. I think the size wasn't bad but the sleeves were very narrow so it wasn't great to use as a jersey to layer-up.

Bugger! I missed the deadline too. I might just buy the new version anyway. It would be so useful.

Hmm I wonder how hard the size 12 would be to upsize to ladies sizes... I really like it! :)

Oh it should be an ongoing update for ones that have bought the pattern.., never saw the update :(

I bought a license to sell from it, and the pattern was FAR to small. Must see if I can get the new one.

If you send them your order number from when you bought it, they will send you the updated pattern :)

They said that option was open for 4 weeks, until 6th April. I have an email this morning from them....haven't opened the PDF but assume its the updated version.

Mama Anne if you can wait a wee while I'll try get a copy printed out today to see how the sleeves compare

I just emailed them on etsy as I don't read the blog - must save it to a list to check out!
