Plaid wool jacket for my daughter - Ottobre 1/2010#14
Second coat ready as well for Eva. I used a very very cute old Ottobre pattern - 1/2010#14:
Working with plaid I thought to skip the side seams again for the bodice and cut the lower skirt stragit and figure the pleats myself to keep the plaid lines matching:
I wanted to add pockets to the pattern but it was a bit difficult with all those pleats and decided to save myself the trouble and added a small one into the lining. Eva as a bit disappointed though with the lack of pockets.
When I first asked her to try it it she asked me to add her buttons. It was so funny.
The second time I asked her to try it a few days later she didn't asked for buttons any more. She asked if I can put some pins to it....
I used some cute polka dots cotton for lining and some buttons from my stash. I could have probably found a better match in store but I was happy to remove some from my stash:
I think her coat turned out really cute in the end:
