A Winter Coat For Sweet pea

 I finished this coat last week but I am just now sharing it with you ladies. I used the Oliver + S Sunday Brunch jacket pattern but made some of my own changes to it. :)
 It if fully lined, inside and outside is a cozy fleece. Sweet pea just loves fleece! The coat wasn't lined before in the original pattern but was very easy to do. All I did was cut out two whole jackets out of the fleece. The front two piece of the jacket skirt was to be cut out with a rectangle slice out of it but I cut it out straight across. I then sewn up the two coats but only one with the collar then sewn them together the entire way around with leaving a 8" opening for turning. To finish it off all I had to do was stitch across the bottom of the coat skirt. Easy Peasy! Then I finished it off with some wooden buttons that is Sweet pea's FAVORITE buttons! 
Here is a look at the inside, all nice and finished. :) I am very happy with the way the coat came out but a word of warning that the button holes were a big pain to make!! I was happy to finish them but I broke a my seam riper opening up the very last button hole. But other than that it was fun to make. :)

Happy Sewing!!! And onto Christmas sewing!!



  1. Wow! That is just precious! Couldn't be any cuter! Great idea in lining it!

  2. It is absolutely precious!! I have this pattern in my "to sew" stack. Was this one terrible complicated? : )
