This is one of the many things I made for my little one over Winter (I'm in Australia - so Winter has been and gone now). I totally winged it with this one. No pattern (because let me be honest, I just can't do patterns - waaaay too many instructions for my liking). I just used one of her T-shirts as a size guide and figured it out as I went along. It's the first time I've ever done a collar as well and I didn't have any instructions so I kinda winged that too. I think if I had to do it again, I would do it differently (the collar). I love the way the jacket turned out though and I even managed to avoid doing buttonholes - woohoo! lol.



By the way - she is doing the "like a diamond in the sky" while I was singing "Twinkle, Twinkle" to her in the photo. Just so you know what's up with the weird hand signal! haha Smiley

Comments welcome as always! Thanks for reading! Smiley
