    I'm glad you are making this available in larger sizes! I was bummed that it only went up to size 4, my daughter just had a growth spurt and is a 5. I love this jacket. Great job!

    I was so hoping you were going to make it in wool and show pictures of the final product but so happy you showed how to make the changes!! I have a new project to add to the never ending list. Thanks!

    Yea! Larger sizes in the pattern. So glad! I bought the fixin&#39;s for the fleece version, but hadn&#39;t bought the pattern yet. I&#39;ll be glad not to have to up-size the pattern on my own. :)<br /><br />And, now I HAVE to try the wool coat! Thanks for all of the tutorials you share!

    That is one gorgeous coat! And it looks adorable on this little angel. I bet this pattern would also look good in larger sizes. What I like the most is the combination of fabrics you used – the wool and the polka dot silk create an interesting contrast. [<a href="; rel="nofollow">Joel Salmon</a>]<br />

    How do we buy one of these???

    How did you finish the armholes? I could totally pull it off with short sleeves but never attempted a lined jacket. I&#39;m thinking I&#39;m going to have to pick out all my sleeves and side seams, which will be a nightmare because of the top stitching and the side seam pockets I added. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I bought this pattern the other day and I am making a size 2T and got the 1/2 yard of fabric it calls for and it&#39;s not even close to being enough fabric. What am I doing wrong?

    O.K., so for the collar, I sewed the lining and the fleece together, but I am stumped now, when I tried to pin it to the jacket, the scallops are smaller than the jacket? How are you suppose to attach the collar, scallops up or down?

    I do not see the link for the “free pattern” you mentioned in the description.

    1. Shauna

      There is no free pattern, or a mention of a free pattern. I used the Abbey Jacket Pattern for the base of the jacket. There are links in the first paragraph as well as links in the end of the post.

    Watch out, world: in this Warm and Cozy Wool Coat, your daughter will be the trendiest girl in town. This tutorial shows you how to make a coat that is ultra chic, adorable and will keep her toasty warm all winter long. Buying coats can be expensive, but with the included free printable patterns and instructions, you can easily create a boutique-worthy, gorgeous wool jacket for less. Add pockets, a fun lining, and big buttons for extra warmth and style. No one will be able to believe that you made this detailed, elegant DIY jacket yourself.

      Sorry for the confusion. That description was not written by me, and sadly the jacket has never had a free printable. It is a hack using a different (paid) pattern as the base.
