My kiddo is obsessed with at-home science experiments. Pretty much every time I go food shopping I have to stock up on Alka-Seltzer, Mentos, diet Coke, baking soda, vinegar, and food coloring, just to name a few favorites. In addition, he has been asking for a lab coat since he first saw Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (remember the scene where Flint gets his first lab coat? My son does!). Since he's turning six (!!) very soon and we are having a (what else?) science-themed birthday party, I finally got around to making him a lab coat of his very own. His only prerequisite was that it had "inside" pockets - for important science stuff, of course.

Here's the finished product:



I started with this pattern I picked up at the thrift store ages ago (pattern C) and ~2 yards of white cotton:



Some modifications I made to the pattern are as follows: I lengthened the pattern sleeves and the shirt overall and increased the number of pockets from one to six (three outside and three inside). The collar part was confusing and I ended up with extra fabric in the front, which became neat little lapels, so I'm cool with it. Grin



The skull logo just adds a bit of personalization.  Wink



Inside pockets in use:

Thanks for looking!

Love it! I especially love how you personalized it for him Smiley
I've been wanting a lab coat myself, just because I think they're awesome, so I can't blame your kiddo for wanting one.
