Blue coat and pink hat

I made this coat for my daughter with an ottobre design pattern. I bought the fabric on a local fleemarket for five euro, it’s a heavyweight double-face cotton with a medalion pattern.
As children grow so fast, I allways make my daugthers coats with a double lining. so she can wear them in summer and wintertime. here I used a pink stepped fabric for wintertime and a blue liberty fabric for the summerlining.

Material Notes

Outside: cotton
extra lining: steped synthetic fabric as used for wintercoats.

    oh double lining idea is interesting… how do you construct it so you can remove the winter one ?

    This is a lovely coat I have several Ottobre’s but have yet to make anything from them.

      Hello, you can use buttons or a zipper like they do for winterraincoats. For this coat I sewed the winter lining in the coat by hand, its simple to remove. And children only wear a coat for max. two seasons….
      Some advice for the ottobre patterns: be sure to have the right measurements as the patternfits are rather big! Thank you for your nice comment!
