Tutorial: Michael Jackson inspired Beat It jacket for a babyJulie Bossert from Sewn Studio is over at the Oliver + S blog today, showing her adaptation of their Nature Walk Pullover pattern that will absolutely put your jaw on the floor.  She turned it into a Michael Jackson “Beat It” jacket for her baby boy. SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!  Seriously, this jacket is amazing!!  It has working zippers inserted at angles all over the front and back, and zip off arms.  (I’d been seeing teasers on her Instagram of the zippers.  Now I know what she was making!!)  In addition to showing close-ups of all the details on this jacket, she also tells how she adapted the pattern to make the Beat It jacket.  Go to the Oliver + S blog to see it for yourself and to read how she adapted the pattern to make it.

    I can remember my 2 sons wearing these jackets, hopefully my daughter will let me create one for our last and youngest grandson (2 1/2 yr old). Oh the fun a certain grandma will have!!!
