I have three kids - so you knew this pattern would be coming at you again didn't you!
This coat was the bargain of the year (so far anyway).
On the good advice of Nikki and her sewing buddy, I popped into Rathdowne Remnants one day to look for wool.
I picked up this piece in the remnants section - supposedly it was 2 metres long and was $20, that's cheap you say...
But the smile on my face was even wider when I got it home and measured it to find it was actually 3.2 metres long and very wide too.
So far I have cut this coat, a large Red Riding Cape from Oliver + s and have possibly enough for one more small cape as well.
This is a size 5 and it fits our not-quite-three-year-old 105cm tall child really well.
Again the sleeves are a little long but it will be great for this winter and next.
I wanted to show you the lining but we have terrible light at the moment and so these pics don't really do it justice.
It's a lovely lightweight Japanese lawn and complements the outer perfectly.
The snaps actually match better than they appear to in these photos, and again, velcro on the inside.
Oh, and before you even ask, you know there's another one coming don't you!
