Before my daughter’s birthday last Sept, I looked for a coat and found this Girl’s Peacoat #143 pattern in the Aug 2013 issue. I used the pale yellow wool fabric that I kept in my stash for years that I originally planned to use for a woman coat. Gladly it ended up as a girl coat instead – it’s too adorable for my dreamy coat!
I added one or two sizes larger than my girl normal size so she can wear it for at least 2 years or so. I lined the coat with synthetic lining and added side pockets. I didn’t add buttons as the pattern suggested. I wanted it to look swingy and easy for my girl to take off. The following steps are simple, even for beginners. Highly recommended.
