A Pink Coat


I was really prepared for Winter this year. I made heaps of coats and jackets before the cold weather hit. This is one of them.

It was made using the New Look 6927 pattern.

I must be quite attracted to this style of jacket because I also bought this pattern.

I admit the top pattern is for 6 months to 4 years and the bottom one is for 3 - 8 years so I am sure to have at least one of these coats in my girls wardrobe for many years to come.

The fabric I used was thick stretchy ribbed material bought on special for less than $5 a metre.
It's great for keeing my girl warm, not so good for sewing buttonholes in though. Because I struggled so much getting the buttonholes to work, I opted for a press stud covered with a large matching pink button.

I added a little bow to the edge of the seam at the cuff.

This is a quick, easy pattern and worth a go if you're looking for a smart Winter coat.


  1. I love it! Love that style of coats too!!!

  2. This looks a lovely warm jacket. Love the extra large button. It really suits the style of jacket. The bow on the cuff adds a nice finishing touch.

  3. oh my goodness that has to be the cutest coat ive ever seen! not only do i want my 3 year old to have one but i want one! :)

    I would love for you to link this up at my diy fashion linky party this week! it's called diy diva thursdays and is a party to showcase all this fashion! Hope to see you :)


  4. That's adorable! I love the giant button and the bow detail on the cuffs.
