KCWC-Sadie's Abbey jacket
My semi-last minute contribution to KCWC was this Abbey jacket for Sadie. Adorbs, right? I made it with this pattern, which was great!
I used charcoal grey fleece from Joanns (hope it doesn't pill too much), and a napkin for the lining. Yes, a napkin. A girl's gotta get fabric wherever she can!
I got it in Utah in May, since it was such a cute print I had to grab it, and it was the perfect amount for this jacket-plus, grey and mustard yellow is such a cute combination!
My favorite touch was using yellow embroidery thread to sew on the white buttons. Perfecto!
I cut out a size 2T (actually kind of intending it to be large on Charlotte), but it fit the Sadester almost perfectly so she got it. The sleeves were a little long, but that's better than too short! The fit everywhere else was great.
I love the button tabs on the front and sleeves! I had pinned a jacket like this one and wanted to copy it but hadn't (obviously) gotten around to it. I just LOVE when other people do the hard work for you. Sometimes I wish I could just clone myself so I could work on two projects at once.
Like another jacket for Charlotte this time!?
