I think it turned out very Baby Gap-like
It's made of buttery soft suede and lined with fleece, so it's super soft AND warm, but it's not really bulky.
All of the raw edges are hidden, so in theory it's reversible...but I wouldn't want the suede on the inside. Maybe I'll do another one day with two fleece colors and make it reversible...but that's for another day.
Ya'll know I'm incapable of following a pattern, so this is another "Jenilyn Original". I measured Gray, added a little room and seam allowances and used shapes of other things I've made her to create the shape I wanted. Hubby wanted her to have a collar instead of a hood, so this was my first attempt at a collar, but it was easy peasy.
I'm still scared of sewing buttonholes (which is why I've never done it) even though I have a buttonhole attachement thingy on my machine, so I think it's set-and-go....one day I'll try it out. The elastic loops are fun anyways.
It kept her toasty warm in the Mountains last week.
I love that it matches her little boots.
She's got room to grow in it, but I've got LOTS of the suede leftover, so if I don't make pillows, or a jacket for me...I can just make her another in a bigger size!
I am over the top thrilled with how it turned out and I'm glad she likes to wear it. I think she needs a few more in other colors to match everything!
