I finished these cute coats a couple of weeks ago, but it just hasn't been cold enough to even wear them.  It seems like fall is just starting to hit us now.  I was inspired to make this coat after seeing From An Igloo's Sew-A-Long.  It is the Stylish Kids Double Breasted Coat Pattern from Dear My Kids, a PDF pattern store on Etsy.  This pattern is excellent.  Very professionally done. The first version she sent me didn't have seam allowances, but she updated the pattern to include seam allowances which definitely a plus to me.  One less step!  I didn't modify the pattern at all, and the sizes seem pretty true to size for my girls.  The only thing I would have probably done differently is add interfacing to the collar as it seems a little floppy.

I used pink and blue corduroy for the outside of the coat and lined them with some flannel from the Bliss fabric line.  I love the flannel.  It so, so soft.  The girls had already worn these coats all day before I got to take pictures so that is why they are all wrinkly!

The required sad face.

Silly faces!
