I made this coat a second time…but it’s for my sister on this go around. She likes pink, and my local Joanns just so happened to have some of this softshell fleece in pink! I made a size BB for her…this is a couple sizes up from what is recommended for her, but my fleece has very little stretch. I think this is a great coat pattern…but I think i’m done with it for awhile.
The lining is a flannel backed satin from Joanns. For the buttons, I used these ones that are white, but also have gold flowers on them. I had a really hard time finding suitable buttons for this jacket. Here is a close up of the buttons.
I need to mail it home to her…she looks really good in pink, so I hope this fits her well enough!
