Hi, there seem to be quite a few coats on at the moment.  I have made one for my girl for this winter.  It is a little big at the moment, but she still has 3-4 months of growing before it starts to get cold.  it is made from a blue/grey cotton drill, lined with floral cotton.  I just love the big white buttons on the front.  The pockets are just flaps, otherwise who know what my little sausage would collect in there!  I wish i had made the collar longer, I think it stops too far back.  I have a grey stripe fabric that I am going to make another one from, so I know all the tweaks needed.







Thanks for looking  Grin

Oh my gosh, she's cute as a button and so is the coat!  I got ambitious myself and made a coat for my daughter this year, it's a bit baggy too but she likes it.  I'd love to make something like the one you did for spring did you use a pattern or draft it?

Thanks, I drafted the pattern myself, from pieces of  patterns of clothes that fit her well, and from looking at pictures of coat styles I liked.  I used a bodice pattern  so I could get the top shape, and extended it for the double breast, and a sundress pattern for the flare at the bottom.  Its really just like a shirt pattern, but with a lining.
