Description

i made this light fall jacket for my 8 year old daughter using burda kids 9487. this is a really nice pattern with some cute details. the only changes i made were to do the interior seams with a hong kong finish, and i made a little pleat in the back instead of gathers as the pattern suggests.

more details and a few more pics on my blog: notes from a mad housewife

    Very cute! A nice little jacket. So sad that kids grow out of their clothes so quickly. Hope she gets some nice wear out of it!
