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.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Beautifully made.  The peter pan collar really sets it off.

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