Made with Simplicity 3582 for my pregnant SIL's future baby.







This was a pretty easy pattern - I didn't follow most of the directions because putting it together seemed intuitive. A lot of the pieces were separate for separate sizes, so I only had to trace off 4 pattern pieces. The jacket is fully lined.

Lesson learned: pay more attention to the wale on corduroy. I didn't on one of the pockets. It's less obvious IRL than in this picture.

oh, its lovely!  The jacket is fantastic (I think I need to pick up that pattern).  I'm loving the orange/lining combo.

Thanks! Best part was it was all fabric I've had sitting around. I think I bought the corduroy 5 years ago. It was just waiting for the right project.

Wow - I love it!  Something for boys - yay!  The color combo is really quite exciting.  Goes way beyond the usual blue and green.  I'm sure that your SIL will love it.

That pattern is totally adorable. I wish that I wasn't so annoyed with Simplicity right now or else I would have to wip that out for my incoming boy. love the fabric choices and the color palette.

That is so adorable.  You did a fantastic job making it look so professional!  Question:  I've been sewing for years, but have never sewed stretchy material.  Do you need a serger or can I use my standard machine.  I love your long sleeve T!
