Getting Winter Started

Hello.

The other morning it was a little chilly and I noticed I didn't have many warm jackets for my 1 year old so I made this one up today. It is New Look 6927.


I actually made this jacket to match the birthday dress I made a couple of weeks ago.


I wanted it to remain quite plain so it can be worn with many outfits so I just added accents of the pink tartan under the collar and for the facings.



I used black piping around the collar and on the pockets.
The buttons were left over from when I made this dress


Does anyone know if there is a rule about what side the button/buttonholes go?
After I did the buttonholes on the righthand side
(which worked like a dream I might add, it's amazing what a sharp needle will do)
I thought to myself they should have been on the lefthand side.
If anyone has an answer I'd love you to leave a comment :)  


I'm not sure if she was hungry or if she found the jacket tasty but she wouldn't stop chewing her sleeves.



All I can say is...roll on Winter, my girl's got a jacket to wear.
