My friend’s daughter turned 3 recently, so I made her a nice coat. I had some nice wool fabric laying around, that I would never otherwise use. I drafted the pattern myself based on a picture of a victorian children’s coat I saw online.
My son is the lovely model, since he’s the same size as my friend’s daughter. He really was a good sport over trying it on and letting me take pictures.
Wool and cotton fabric, four pearled snaps.
