Olive turned two a couple of weeks ago, and we had absolutely no money, so I made her a couple of gifts, instead.
This coat was made using an old suit from the thrift store that I bought for a Halloween costume years ago, and is lined with fleece from a oversized vest that was never worn.
I made the pattern on the fly (which took forever to figure out), but it was inspired by many different toddler jackets I’ve seen that I’ve wanted to get her. I just could never bring myself to shell out so much money for something she’ll grow out of in 4 months! I’m pretty happy with how it came out. I just wish I made it a little bigger, and a little longer.
I wanted to get some cute birthday balloon pictures, but toddlers are so uncooperative! She was super cranky before her party, and the only way I could get her to stay still was with crackers haha
