Thanks everyone!

I love them both.  Esp the orange and polka dot one.  Are you going to be expanding the size range on your coats?  I'd love to be able to make a 5t or larger...  Excellent job!

I might do... I get apprehensive when I don't have an actual child right in front of me to measure and try it on though!

I've made a couple more asymetrical jackets since my original polkadot cord one. 

The first one is in my favourite orange bird fabric, reversing to the polkadot cord that I seem to be using for absolutely everything these days.  It has two massive buttons to the side, using the fabric from the other side of the jacket.  I hope this makes the black and white side less 'Halloweeney'  (this is the technical term) than if it was just plain orange buttons.  I was a little bit nervous making it because it was a size 5T and I've never made anything that big before! 




The second one is fushia with lime green leaves (I'm obsessed with these colours just now) and I've reversed it to lime green heavyweight cotton.  Lime buttons on the front and pink and white polkadot buttons on the back.  Unfortunately I had run out of massive buttons, so I think these are a bit too small.  I'm trying to decide whether to redo the buttonholes to make them bigger...



Thanks for looking!

There is a lot of information and advice on the web about sewing with knits (and probably better than mine!) but I posted about it today on my blog:

Ha, that made me laugh, thanks!   Grin

I think it turned out really, really nice!  I like the 3/4 sleeves (in fact my original dresses for dd are now tunics with 3/4 sleeves too!), I love the buttons and I think the FOE looks great!

Re: the head thing, I've botched this before...  Quickest way to re-draft the pattern is to made the shoulder seams narrower (i.e. move the point where you start your diagonal line) or when you draw your diagonal line move the point under the arm down (i.e. deepen the V).

Anyway, I think it turned out great!  Smiley

My daughter has a bubble butt and thunder thighs  Grin . She's only 22 months but even 2Ts are skin tight!

Great job!  And your daughter looks gorgeous in that colour of blue!

Lovely!  That fabric is so pretty and your daughter looks very happy to be wearing it!

How about tweed with cute elbow patches?

Very pretty! That's is a beautiful colour and your daughter is gorgeous!

I'm intrigued about the fabric at the neckline and sleeve edges, is it ribbing?

Lucky you to win the pattern!  I need to buy this pattern, seriously.  Kitschy Coo, do you think it will fit narrow shouldered babes?



I've PM'ed you  Smiley

I really like the vertical buttons, I haven't done that yet!  And that fabric is really pretty.  Smiley
