Matinee Jacket

This is my first ever Enid creation - the Matinee Jacket from Clothes For Your Children (p20).

The size is described as "infant". Perhaps I was too generous with my seam allowances but this jacket would certainly be too large for the average newborn - it fits my seven & half month daughter beautifully.

Pattern: Matinee Jacket
Book: Clothes for your Children (p20)
Size: infant
Fabric: tracksuit fleece
