Thanks so much for all your lovely comments and feedback!

very nice!  I love all your fabrics!  Do you mind disclosing where you get the lovely bird fabs, I can never find any!  (I especially like the orange!)

Thanks, the orange and white ones are IKEA, the Aviary is Alexander Henry!

I think they're too feminine for a boy.  Maybe it's the peter pan collar.  For a boy's coat I'd want a pointed collar or notched lapels or something... something more evocative of a men's blazer.  Flap pockets, or a breast pocket maybe?

I agree, I was thinking of a pointy collar for a boy and slightly less a-line / bit more boxy.  Thanks for the advice on the pockets, I like the idea of a patch pocket if single breasted especially!

Thanks for everyone's help on the goretex fleece, I love Craftster!

Goodness gracious, where on earth do you find the time for all of this?  

Of course, I'm not brave enough to come up with my own pattern, but I'll certainly test yours out if you want.   Cheesy  


Haha, I do have to admit that all the coat work I've been doing over the last couple of weeks has almost killed me!  About 6 hours a night after the kids are in bed!  It shouldn't take that long, it's just my shady fabric choices.   Tongue  I've got two people testing the pattern in two different sizes just now, I'll let you know how it goes!  Wink

They're all gorgeous!

I'm a girl though, and I want the white one for me! 


She hit the nail on the head!!!  I too think Peter Pan collars like that look feminine, the pointy collars and more boxed shape will make the coat PERFECT for a boy.  If I were you I'd make and sell that pattern QUICkLY!!

As always your coats are awesomely cute!!

Super cute! I love the orange fabric (thanks for the tip off, I didn't realise Ikea had such cute fabrics) I agree with the other posters, a bit more boxy and pointed collar and you have a fantastic jacket for a little boy.

Looks like you need to ask Santa for a big industrial machine so you can keep making all your beautiful jackets with out all the fight!  Wink

Thanks so much for clearing that up, confirms to me that the lady was just being mean!
Silly mean people!!!

I always love seeing what else you've made.  I've shown my boyfriend before, and always joke with him that I hate it when kids are dressed nicer than I am.  (Which is a lie, of course, I LOVE it and think it's ADORABLE)  They all look great, and I like it with and without the topstitching.  I really don't think you could go wrong.  Also, I see no reason why a similar style, maybe tweaked a bit, wouldn't work for a little boy.  He'd be the most handsome guy in town!
