I made this coat from this pattern:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/61707344/chic-cocktail-swing-coat-pattern-and

I actually altered the whole thing to be a size 12 month, it came in 12M/2T combined size and it looked like it would be too big for my baby to be around winter time, so I just shaved a bit off each piece to make them smaller. If you haven't made a coat before and are looking for a simple pattern, this is only a few pieces, the directions are quick and easy, and the outcome is adorable.

The coat is made of 100% wool, and the lining is cotton.
