A baby coat!

My first proper bit of clothing for my wee man. A softshell coat with teddy fleece lining. It is sized for 2T, and he’s 16 months, so we’ll hopefully get a whole winter out of it.

I sewed almost the whole thing on the overlocker as the fleece kept getting chewed up by the sewing machine. Overlocker has no such problem.

It still needs fastenings (Kam snaps are on the way, along with some decent pliers) and a few bits of hand stitching where I didn’t quite catch all the layers of fabric, but I’m pretty chuffed with it!

Some matching snow trousers to follow. That might make him looks slightly less like a wizard/ Star Wars character!

Thank you both!! He’s a very outdoorsy baby so a proper cosy coat was needed for winter, as nothing will keep him indoors!

Fabulous coat, and gorgeous baby!

Thank you everyone!! I’ve just finished it this week, adding kam snaps. It’s definitely way too big, more of a wizard cloak 😂

Lovely coat - hopefully he'll grow into it this winter.
