Nice job - love the coat with the asymmetrical collar!  She looks adorable in it.  Smiley  That waistcoat is darling...too bad it didn't fit.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! I saw a coat in a magazine with an asymmetrical collar and had to recreate it... I think it's a bit harder to get right for baby clothes as their chests are so small and narrow.  If it was a big ol' coat for me I'd have plenty of space to get the collar the perfect proportions (in theory anyway!).  Smiley

I like the asymmetrical collar on the jacket too...for some reason it looks more "intended" on the polka dots than on the solid, but maybe it's just my fevered, sleep-deprived brain.

Sorry you're not feeling well, hope you feel better soon!  I see what you mean about "intended"... the collar is  definately more noticeable on the red side.  I think maybe if I folded it over slightly less it would sit better / cleaner. *crosses fingers*.  I was (as per usual) chasing her around the garden trying to get it on.  Cheesy

love the asymmetrical jacket.  Looks very intentional (how could you sew that wrong?)  The fabrics are nice and bold too - really sets it all off.  great stuff!

I actually had to show him a picture of a proper coat (as in one sold in stores) with an asymmetrical collar before he 'got' that I wasn't just being outlandish.  Roll Eyes
