Quick little jacketAugust 02, 2012
I whipped up this little polar fleece jacket for Emily yesterday. I made a similar one for Isabella when she was a baby and she wore it lots. I didn't use a pattern so it sort of 'evolved' as I was making it. Luckily Emily was playing the game and let me try it on her a few times as the pieces were coming together so I could trim and measure as I went.
When I say 'whipped up', I mean I didn't neaten the seams. Since it's polar fleece there will be no fraying. I left the cuffs long so Emily can grow into it a little. The edging is a sweet printed interlock I had in my fabric stash. I used it to cover the buttons too.
With a low of 4 degrees predicted tonight, I think Emily will be getting some wear out of this jacket when we are out and about.
I'm linking up here today.
