A Fall Coat for My Littlest Pumpkin

This pattern whips itself into a jacket in a matter of hours. It’s the Casey Jacket from Children’s Corner, inc. I’ve been carrying around this fall tree fabric for about three years! I was not sure if it should be overalls, pants or a backpack. But suddenly, while I was pregnant with sweet Baby Q, the inspiration came to use this fall twill to make a coat for him.

You can use any weight fabric you wish for this hooded jacket. I’m going to try a super warm plush one next. The buttons are covered in the lining fabric, which may look hard but is the easiest task in sewing I’ve yet to try (seriously). The lining fabric used is Fox Trails by Doohikey Designs for Riley Blake.

Isn’t it nice when your outfit matches your toy? Even if that is a warning sign that you have yourself a crazy mommy… at least you look good!

Okay sewists, I know this project looks hard, but it is not. So try it and tell me about it!

Enjoy!

    • Charlie, this is an ample cut but I tend to size up anyway. Especially when using a cute coordinating fabric for the lining… you can roll up the sleeves and get a longer wear! Happy Sewing!
