Been toying with the idea of making children’s clothing with a dress up/dress down look. Made the jacket in a couple of days from a self drafted pattern. It does still need buttons though, but havent managed to findtheones I have in mind. The one thing I am still having a hard time with is fixing the lining for the back vent, any good tips on how to give it a professional look is greatly appreciated.
Used cotton twill for the outer layer, flannel backed satin for the lapel and a satin like lining.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
