Something For The Cooler Weather...

I have made this little garment as my piece in the Enid sew-a-long over at Crafty Mamas. I chose it because this winter I am mad about coats and jackets for the kids and thought this a lovely little sweet number for Lainey.

Book : Enid Gilchrist's Baby Book
Garment: Jacket for Those Cooler Days pge 46
Size : 9-18 mo
Fabric: Pink baby cord and Maroon cord.

I liked the sizing on this and did not have to take any of it in. I found the collar a challenge but only because this is the second one I have ever done! I used a snap instead of a button (thank goodness for snap presses!) and I used satin ribbon instead of bias binding because I didn't have the right size!

Overall I liked this pattern and thought it can come out very smart or very casual and cozy. I would definitely make it again, this time maybe in a more casual fabric like flannelet.

  1. Gill, that is very sweet. I so want a girl so i can make this one up too!Maybe I should make one anyway. A matching skirt would be lovely.
