It is easy to flip your pieces on the lining and sew them incorrectly if you are using something without a clear wrong/right side.

Our notes: This ultra-chic version has hidden snaps instead of buttons, for a cleaner finish. The heavy canvas gives the coat great structure.

The details on this are incredibly cute! The buttons and the lining go so well with the design.

Our notes: This coat combines so many of the things we love, including hidden (and not-so-hidden) nerdery. It is warm, refined, geeky, and cool.

I’m sure your child is delighted; any little princess would be! Clean work, good fit, and it moves great!

Our notes: If you think the adult version of this jacket is classy, just look at the kids' version! Toddlers look like the royalty they are in all those layers and buttons.

[The jacket has a] reflective bias binding, like the one they use on safety vests.

Our notes: This version is unlined, and instead has a bias binding on all the seams. It's a lot of work to bind the seams, but it looks great on the inside and outside!

Used the pattern as is and was a great fit.

Our notes: The twirl factor on this coat is off the charts! It works whether you wear it over an equally floofy skirt, or just want the bottom-covering warmth.
