A School Jacket


I seem to be making a lot of jackets and coats this year, but you need to when you have 6 kids.
Here is my latest one, made for my 10 year old.

I used the McCall's 5697 pattern.

I used some of the fabric I got from my Oma but it was not quite enough.
I had to compensate with a contrasting collar and facing.
I'm wishing I had of chosen a black or darker colour instead of the check now :(

I have made this jacket before but this is the first time I added the tabs to the sleeves.
I'm really happy with this feature.

Overall I'm very happy with this new school jacket for my daughter.

Linking up here.
