Loulou's first coat.

Added Feb 2, 2011

Brugge, Belgium






I made this coat for my daughter when she was 3 years old. The fabric was a fleemarket find, its 1960’s cotton curtain fabric. I knew immediatly what I wanted to make with it. I found this pattern in “Burda voor kleuters” from 1974 (I was 4 then :-)) For the lining I used a liberty print I found at a stocksale. I also made a double stepped lining as for the blue coat.

Material Notes

Cotton, synthetic stepped fabric, buttons




Spring, Fall, Winter
Garment Type

    Absolutely beautiful – I wish I had one in my size, but I guess I’ll have to settle for trying to make one for my little girl. ;)
