I made a coat for my niece for Christmas. Actually, two coats.
Pink fleece for the wearable muslin, in this photo she is yelling “ta-da”. I love the striped leggings.
The pink fleece is a 2 yard piece bought from Joanne’s in Colma a few years ago on a late night fabric run. I was going to copy an overpriced yoga wrap* but never got around to it. Matching buttons are from StoneMountain.
The actual version, purple corduroy with floral print, from Fabric Mart several years ago. I lined with dark purple poly satin from the half price section at StoneMountain, and the buttons are from StoneMountain.
I think she rivals the Burda model for cuteness:
*Here’s the yoga wrap I never got around to sewing. I found some organic cotton fleece at Discount Fabrics I liked, might be good for this. I made a mockup out of forest green fleece which came out too butch for my taste. Of course, I probably should take up regular yoga participation to rationalize the wrap.
