Here's a Downtown Boy jacket I made using the new BIG version of the pattern. It looks a little sloppy on Oscar as it is a bit big for him - he is 5 1/2 and this is a size 6.
Unless you are planing on going with solids, finding suitable fabric for Downtown Boy can be tricky. I really like the look this plaid fabric gives though.
Here's a bit of Downtown Boy inspiration from the Make It Perfect Flickr group - if you have taken photos of any thing you've made from a Make It Perfect pattern, feel free to add them to the group. It's a great place to go for a bit of inspiration - especially when it comes to choosing fabric!
