After a slight delay because I ran out of red thread (which made me start working on the green one instead) I’ve finished both the coats I was making for the children from Five and Ten Designs Volume 2. I made no changes to the patterns and am pretty happy with the way they came out.
Sewn for: Wee Man
Size: 18 months
Fabric: Grass Green Twill and Light Grey Flannel from myfabrics
Thread: Gutermann 239 (green)
Notes: Used green thread throughout even on the lining. 4 25 mm buttons. Didn’t interface the placket. Didn’t do the extra topstitching except on the hood opening.
Pattern: Look 8 from Five and Ten Designs Volume 2
Sewn for: Hobbit
Size: 4 years
Fabric: Anti-pilling fleece (Carmine) from myfabrics
Thread: Gutermann 226 (red)
Notes: 4 25 mm buttons. Some problems making the buttonholes on 2 layers of fleece but the fleece won’t fray so think it’s ok. Sleeves are lined with twill scrap fabric in a good colour match I had in stash.
