I have been wanting to do this for years and decided that it was now my last chance (last baby)...

I found this coat at the thrift store for 15$. It is warm and in good condition but was a bit tight on me....

I cut a panel off the back, added rib knit to the sides and top and a bit of elastic at the bottom and a bit around the neck area and have a great New-to-me babywearing coat that will keep both dd and I warm this winter...

Adding the rib knit right to the bottom means that the coat now fits very well... the elastic on the bottom of the panel hugs me so no cold air goes up the back...

What an awesome idea! I wish I would have thought of this a couple of years ago when my baby was baby-wearing size!
Great job- I bet you could make these and sell these  Smiley
