This is a jacket I made for my niece for Christmas. It is from a pattern by kitschycookids. The pattern was well done and the instructions were easy to follow, so the coat was pretty easy to make. I made some adjustments to the shape of the jacket. My younger niece is quite girly, so I exaggerated the swing shape of the coat, the size of the collar, and the flare of the sleeves to give it more of a cape feel.
(I’ve noticed I forgot to take out the basting thread along the bottom of the back of the jacket. It’s not meant to have that line of white stitching down there.)
