I found this Burda pattern (9676) at JoAnn's. It was on sale, and I thought it was cute, so I got it and thought I'd give it a shot. It's sat in my "to get done" pile for a while and then I found the perfect fabric for it. Yay!

Completed:


I'm really happy at how the sleeve seams came together. My first time of actually getting sleeves to sit with no puckering. I didn't use gathers - I just eyeballed it while pinning it together. So yeah, I'm feeling pretty good about them.



If I had thought to get a reversible zipper, it could totally be reversible:


And a couple more action shots:

     


The only thing I'm not happy with are the pockets. They were an afterthought and I ended up messing them up. Oh well. What does the girl care, right?

This is adorable! It looks big enough to give her some room to grow, and it is probably great for keeping tabs on her in a large group.
