Marisa's Wintercoat

Added Sep 17, 2009

My third grandchild Marisa is 15 months old now. She is such a sweet little girl so she must have sweet little clothes.
When I found that bouclé fabric I new at once what to do with it. A waste fabric of my red beveled corduroy skirt fitted to it, so I had the lining too. I took the Burda Fashion pattern No. 146 from 11/2003, size 80. Originally it’s a blouse pattern.
Then I had the idea to make a hat. I took head perimeters from around her head, from ear to ear and from forehead to neck. Then I cut a round piece of paper for pattern with these measures and added a square piece for the brim, as long as the circumference of the round piece and about 8 centimeters (2 3/4 inches?) wide. I sewed it with the bouclé fabric and corduroy lining. Now Marisa can wear the hat by turning inside out.

Material Notes

knit bouclé fabric, 50 × 140 cm, fiiting soft red corduroy, 6 orange buttons




Garment Type
Corduroy, Wool

      Ah… I think your grandschild is a winner because you are her grandmother, but it should be a ‘winTer’ coat – or not? ;)
