This is the third time I've made this coat and at this point I think it will be my last!
I am so happy to be finished with this! I've had it in the queue since October. That's 3 months.
Melissa is very pleased with it though and thinks I made it really quickly. She didn't see me work on it until I was finishing it up.
I always like the lining to have a bit of punch. Red flannel to keep her warm. This time, though, I used a satiny lining for the arms. It is difficult to get an arm out of a coat with flannel lining.
I bought the denim at the thrift store for $4. It is hard to see on the photos, but it is a really nice denim. I spent about $6 on the lining fabrics. The pattern is one I've used before. So about $10 for a Sunday coat. I think it will last her for 2 winters. If not, I have two more girls to wear it out. :-)
Please excuse the terrible photos. I was playing with my camera settings to get a decent photo in dusky conditions. It is dusk all day here right now. Really.
