Our challenge last week was Puddle Jumping, so I thought of rain jackets. Mine was made from 'Chic & Simple Sewing' by Christina Haynes, the Trench Coat. The book only has patterns through size 12, so I added about an inch all the way around to make my own XL size. This was a super simple jacket to make. I also made the 25" belt from another project in the book.
Had I known this book was so simple, I probably wouldn't have purchased it. No button holes or zippers...very simple, beginner sewing projects for smaller, younger women. If you can rock a baby doll dress, then you'd love this book. Larger gals like me are not going to find many appropriate patterns. I only paid $10 though, so it was worth it for the few patterns I will use.
Mally's jacket is from DMK, the Little Red Riding Hood jacket. I love the removable hooded cape. The cape is also reversible, so you get 3 looks in 1 coat!
Lastly, here's our Frog Prince. I used the crown from Little Blue Boo and the frog from ???? can't find the link now.
This week I'm working on Let's Go Fly A Kite. Hope to get all my sewing done!
