Red Winter Coat

It really is the yearly winter coat challenge. And I realize there might be no going back, I might have started a tradition. Luckily, it really does get easier every year. If you are interested, here are winter coat number 1, winter coat number 2 and winter coat number 3.

Oh, something's missing? Can you tell?
She's been waiting and praying for it for 6 months. I would love for all my teeth to still be intact but she's over the moon.

This is really beautiful! Did you make the pattern yourself? My daughter doesn't want a coat with buttons and finding one with a zipper is diffciult...

And what a beautiful tradition! Love this red version! I am smiling at your comment about the teeth...

Jo said...

Just lovely, as they've all been, but I think this one is my favourite :-) My big girl couldn't wait to lose her first tooth either, then they all started popping out quickly!

I love it! I think this is the kind of coat a girl would love to wear at any age. Whimsical and practical.

Love this! Did you use a pattern or is this your own creation/invention? I'd love a link to the pattern (if there is one) so that I could give it a try for my daughter. : )

Trula said...

@ Jane, Sorry for the late reply. I created my own pattern for this, I am afraid. But it's not very complicated :)

maria said...

Oooh! I would the pattern too snif! It's so beautiful!

such a winner. I agree, a zippered coat is ideal for kids, but a zipper doesn't always coincide with style in storebought ones.

Lovely! When I saw it I thought I had to make something similar for my daughter...so I am looking for a pattern or a book to create an own pattern and a good tutorial how to insert a zipper as nicely as you did.
I love the colors, the fabrics...really very nice!
