Little Girls Trench Coat


Today I completed the jacket I was making to match the Lula Maxi dress.

I used the NewLook 6018 pattern and added in a belt and some belt loops
to create more of a trench coat style jacket.

The jacket is made from lovely soft suede fabric.
I co-ordinated the facing and under the collar with the dress but it is not obvious
so this jacket will be able to be worn with many different outfits.

I recycled the buttons off a top my daughter no longer wanted and I think they work perfectly!
This jacket is officially my second sale. Woo hoo!

I have now created a facebook page listing all the things I've made that I am selling so check it out and send me a friend request while you're there :-)

  1. WOW! Sherry, I have just spent the better part of the last half hour ogling and admiring your sewing creations! Thanks for stopping by at The Quick Unpick and leaving a lovely comment... I think I needed to find your blog to help get me re-inspired to get back behind the sewing machine as lately I've lacked the motivation. Your jackets are gorgeous and I love how you tweak standard patterns to make them your own and just that little bit more special and OOAK!
    Off to happily follow you about! :)
