Description

This coat was from a vintage pattern I had from won on ebay. But I tweeked it just alittle, I added the red trim because I had seen a movie and one of the actress was wearing a coat with the same look. I looked every where for a coat like that, so I decided to make one but I wanted to test it out on my friends kid first. The inner lining I used a red flannel, and I used gold buttons. The brown coat is from the same vintage pattern but its a single button variation. Its not as warm because I used 100% cotton as a lining.

Material Notes

100% cotton navy blue/ brown canvas
Lining is red brushed flannel/ 100% cotton pattern fabric

    They’re both so adorable! The blue reminds me of Madeline :) I’d like to know which pattern it is as well.

    It looks like something Marlo Thomas would wear on That Girl! Also reminds me of Madeline! This is soooo cute, I’ve been dying to find a coat just like this one! Awesome job!

    Is it based on the coat Zooey Deschanel wears in Yes Man? I love that coat and I love this kids coat, I’m jealous of that child that gets to wear it! :-D
