Alex's Winter coat

Added Sep 23, 2008

Houston, Texas, ...






So in Texas it technically will only be winter for a week and not until january… but I had to make this, just because. It falls just past her knees and it has pockets. Its fleece and Windsor satin, I think or thats what the sign said. It has one button at the top but I’m thinking of adding more. And the hood and cuffs are black satin. I think thats all

Material Notes

Fleece, satin, button,

    Oh, this is really sweet. It would be great if you could do a how-to! I wonder what it would look like in an adult size.

    It is great for the cold its alot thicker then i thought it would be. I did make a pattern for this coat, and the second i figure out how to get it up here i’ll put it up. The only catch is that the only size i have it for will be her size which is a 3t ish, since her clothes is made to fit. But i’m sure all you clever people will be able to enlarge it to your needs.

    This is gorgeous. I know you don’t use patterns for Alex’s dresses, but did you use one for the coat? If not, is there any chance you could do a how-to please? I’d love to make something like this for my granddaughter, because our winters are very cold!
