And lucky for me this sweet little jacket fit this sweet little baby pretty well. With a little growing room, so hopefully it will last her through the rest of the cold weather. The jacket is really simple and basic even if it is fully lined and has a collar. So I will walk you through the process on how to make one, and you can make one in any size. (and we can all laugh at how the newborn leggings are not even close to fitting that little girl)
To start you will use a basic bodice and sleeve. To draft this I used a newborn top as my guide and created the pattern. (if you need help with that check out this post) You will also need a collar but I explain how to cut that out later. The only changes you will make to your bodice is that when you are cutting out the front you will cut 2 pieces (4 total 2 for outer 2 for lining) But you want to extend the front out about 2 inches so it will overlap in the front when buttoned. Ok with all your pieces cut out we are ready to sew.
Lastly add buttons. I used fabric covered buttons to match the lining. The left ones are just sewn on and the right ones are functional so they also got button holes. Lastly turn the sleeves in to hem and you are done with a simple and cute little jacket.
The lining may just be my favorite part, besides the babe inside of course :)
