I like to use patterns as a guide rather than something I have to follow exactly. My end result usually ends up as something quite different from what its intended to in the pattern. Usually that's intentional. This jacket was made using a McCall's pattern for a fleece jacket. I used corduroy and lined it with fleece. The sleeves ended up too long since I had to guess their size (they don't make it in the size I wanted). That worked out, because then Miss Bella could wear it for two years.
Here she is modelling it last year with the sleeves rolled up:
And here she is wearing it this year. I don't know what's with that face. Silly girl.
The back, complete with car seat wrinkles.
Coming soon: a dress made using the same pattern.
