I bought the asymmetric reversible jacket pattern from Kitschycoo.  I loved this pattern!  It was so easy, and had handy hints is useful places, as well as lots of colour photos.  I made the 18M/2T version, and the only thing I found that didn't make sense on the pattern was the fabric requirements.  It said two yards of the shell fabric and the lining fabric, but I had a metre of both (I'm in NZ and we work in metric), and there was more than enough.  I made it in a cute canvas type fabric with adorable mushrooms, and a blue cotton with weird splodges on it.  I made this with a boy in mind, who will be about 18 months round christmas (handy!) but I'm a bit worried that it looks a bit girly.

Anyway, to the photos!





from the blue side you can see it still needs another button, I have to pick up another button covering kit from the store, but I wanted to post this!

It is good to see there is another kiwi on this site Cheesy. i love your frabic choice and would be very interested as to where you got it, as i find it so hard to find  good frabic stores( i am in auckland). I mostly go to spotlight. i bet the little one who gets this jacket will love it.

It looks really cute! You did a nice job on it.. but I might not put it on a boy, either ( I have 3 girls- so)
Love the mushroom fabric!

That's very cute!  What adorable fabric!  I agree that it's pretty girly, though.   Smiley

Totally adorable! You did a great job! But I agree ... looks a little too girly for a boy.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

Oh  my!  So cute!  I may have to make one for my niece!  I do agree with you - maybe a little girly for a boy though.

Really love your fabric choices!

I made the 18M/2T version, and the only thing I found that didn't make sense on the pattern was the fabric requirements.  It said two yards of the shell fabric and the lining fabric, but I had a metre of both (I'm in NZ and we work in metric), and there was more than enough. 

You're right, I should be clearer about the fabric requirements  Smiley  2yds is really the maximum needed... If you were making 3T / 4T on 44" width fabric and the print is directional, the front pieces, back piece and sleeves all need to be cut one above the other rather than side by side.  I'll clear it up for my next print run, thanks!  Smiley

So cute! I love it!

And it may be a tad girly but I would put it on my boy. (I'm laissez-faire about that, though.)
