Beautiful! I love the closure! do you know what that fabric is called or the designer's name? I'd love to get some.  And if you made your own pattern, I'd so buy it.
Your baby is too adorable! love that little belly!

I absolutely LOVE this!  Green and brown together is a winning combo.  Refer to my turtle outfit!

This would look so cute with a little flared skrt!

I just emailed the url to my mom so she could see your jacket. She's planning to make something simillar for my 2 year old sis. It's so cute and if you didn't make it reversible I bet it would be a simple project.
Would love to know if you made the pattern yourself or bought it somewhere. Smiley

Made the pattern myself, it wasn't that hard.  Reversible actually makes it easier for me because I don't have to deal with the dreaded binding around curves and I can hide ugliness inside!  Wink

oooh love it!! such clever closures, so great!

Closures... again, easier for me as I don't like getting my head around overlapping plackets!

I've never used a pattern for doing reversible things, the most important thing (and hardest without a pattern or tute) is figuring out the last possible point when you can attach them before it's too late (i.e. you need to be able to sew them together right sides in and then flip)!  Many a time I have sewn each side further than the 'point of no return' and realised there was no way to attach them!

So you pretty much cut two of the same thing, sew each independantly to the point where you need to attach them, attach them, and then finish the final result.  Something like this jacket which is split down the front is actually pretty easy to reverse, especially if you do a binding at hem and sleeve instead of hemming.  Binding is generally your friend (I didn't think I would ever say that!) when doing reversible things, technically speaking you could make 2 of anything and attach them together with binding at neck, sleeve and hem.

Once you do one reversible thing, you'll get your head around doing others!  Maybe try a simple skirt first?
