The MBJM Hot Chocolate Top and Dress is the perfect cool weather addition to your sewing collection. There are three neckline options: round neck, cowl neck and hoodie, and two pocket options: patch pockets and kanga pounch. Add to that the two different lengths for the top and dress and you have a huge number of combinations!
Please note, I call the longer length a dress, since that’s what I, as a Yorkshire-Aussie girl, call it. I know that others may call it a tunic or something else altogether. The ‘dress’ is basically a long top, designed to be worn over skinny jeans or leggings.
The MBJM Hot Chocolate Top and Dress pattern goes from prem./small newborn right up to age 12. It is suitable for enthusiastic beginners.
There is a coordinating Adult pattern available called the Hot Coffee.
The pattern is created in layers meaning you can print just the layers (sizes) you need. It can be printed using A4, legal or letter sized paper.
Please note that this is listing for a downloadable PDF sewing pattern, not a finished garment. Due to the nature of digital downloads no refund can be given if bought in error.

Yes! MBJM will always state the sewing level for a pattern in its description. However, MBJM provide very detailed instructions with lots of helpful photos so that sewists of all levels can access them. And whilst an overlocker would be useful for many of my patterns, it is not essential, and they can all be done on a regular sewing machine.
Yes, please do! Recognition of the fact you are using a Made by Jack’s Mum pattern, somewhere in your listing, website or Facebook page is appreciated, but not compulsory. There is no license fee for selling from any MBJM pattern. However, in the small print for each pattern MBJM do make the suggestion that it would be kind to make a charitable donation of your choice instead of paying a license fee to me.
The ‘layers’ function enables you to select just the sizes you want when viewing and printing a pattern. To use it you must open your patterns using Adobe Reader. On the left hand side of your screen you will see a symbol that looks like two diamonds. Click on that and simply select the layers you require. Whichever sizes you need, make sure to also select the ‘pattern information’ layer. This contains things such as labels and page numbers. I always recommend printing from a desktop or laptop, rather that a phone or tablet.
All of MBJM patterns are formatted for A4, letter and legal sized paper. They work hard with testers to make sure that people all over the world can easily use their patterns.
