Description

I found some machine knit fabric at the op shop but it was pale pink – the worst pink there is. but it was $2 for the metre and i thought i might be able to add another fabric to give it a bit of an edge. In the end I used blue and red embroidery thread to outline the diamond design and added a contrasting fabric for the yoke and cuffs. I used burda 9645 – it is actually for a shirt but easily adapted for a jacket. I think my lovely toddler looks gorgeous in it – hope you do too.

Material Notes

machine knit from the op shop and quilting fabric from spotlight. vintage buttons.

    You achieved your objective beautifully. The yoke and cuffs make this a one-of-a-kind creation!

      yes, i’m really pleased with the choice i made. that’s the advantage of having a large stash of fabrics to choose from. at least i’m using the stash up – i had quite a few years off sewing but didn’t stem the buying of fabrics. it’s my vice!

    She does look gorgeous in it. Great job with the fabric combo and diamond stiches. I love it and she is adorable.
