I made this little coat for my daughter.  I've had this wool remnant sitting in my stash for donkey years, and managed to only just squeeze a Sophie-size pattern onto it.  This design is from from the Ottobre 1/2010 issue, and is really a pinafore dress.  But I've lengthened it a little and have lined it, because the wool is a little bit scratchy.

I love it!  Great job - I like the idea of turning the pinafore pattern into a coat.  Very classy!

Beautiful work, and as the mom of a toddler I agree sleeves do just get in the way.

Congrats on being a best of winner.
