Fair Weather Jacket

I love this Fair Weather Jacket pattern from Indietutes. I wanted to make it for Anna right away. It is so her.


The original pattern has a hood, but I really wanted an oversized collar instead.
I also changed the buttons around a bit.




While we both love it, I am not crazy about the fabric I got.
It is a cotton twill from Joann's which was not the best choice. It is really hard to get all the wrinkles out and after washing the fabric I noticed there are some lighter lines through it.
Maybe if I wash it again they will go away?



This was really fun to make. It is complete with inside pockets and a cute lining.
You can get the pattern by visiting Indietutes. She has a lovely blog with lots of great ideas. Link on over to her Etsy shop, and you can get the pattern there.

It's adorable. I am NOT a seamstress, but it is on my list of things to do to take a sewing class this month! I know very basics. Your children are very fortunate to have such a talented mother!

That is absolutely adorable. The buttons, the collar, the color - awesome! I hope Anna loves it. I sure do! Wonder if I could grade up the pattern to make it me-sized....

I've been checking her etsy shop since I saw this here, and cannot wait for her to put up a Jessie sized one. Fortunately Jessie is slim for her age, and could probably get by with a 10. This is really, really adorable.
