This was a long project and since it was pretty tedious, I only did a little at a time so it took me over a month to complete it.I found this pattern at a flea market in Seattle for two dollars. I have always wanted to make an old fashioned child’s wool overcoat. I was going to make a little hat but Gigi would just pull it off.
When I opened the pattern I was a little shocked at how complicated the directions were to make a toddler’s coat. So to add to the complications I decided to do an inner lining on the coat and pad stitch the lapel.
