Kid's Clothes Week - Day ThreeApril 24, 2013
Okay, so I went over time budget on Day Three of Kid's Clothes Week, but I had a rare two hour day time window yesterday (Issie at kinder, Juliette and Emily asleep), so I kept on going and got this jacket finished last night.
I love this pattern so much I have made it three times. It is the Little Uptown Girl jacket by Make it Perfect. I made it up in a size 1 for Emily (who is almost 14 months). I sewed slightly narrower seams so that hopefully this will also fit her next year.
My first Uptown Girl jacket is here and the second one here. Juliette now fits into the first jacket, so all three of our girls have one of these to keep them warm!
The jacket is fully lined so takes some time to construct as you are essentially making two jackets. It is a straightforward pattern though and very satisfying to put together. I was lucky to score the checked wool fabric for free from the mother of a friend of a friend (it pays to tell people you sew...and love free fabric!). I lined it with this gorgeous print I found at my local Spotlight. It is called Woodland Walk by Belle and Boo. I was very excited when I found it, as not only does it match perfectly, it is also so pretty and perfect for an incy, wincy little girl!
I went a bit overboard with photos, but I thought since Emily hasn't featured so much on my blog so far, that she needed some air time!
