Rerelease of The (Buzz Puffer Coat and) Mackinaw Coat by DbCA

I just had the chance to work with one of my favorite people of the sewing community, again, that is Ajaire, from Designs by Call Ajaire... and it was great. I had my mind all set on sewing only the things that were really necessary for my kids, but somehow I found myself signing to sew yet another coat for my daughter... of course, she has at least 5 more, but I just couldn't pass on the chance to try on the Mackinaw coat. 

And it payed off. The girl loved it so much! She's been a picky rat and it kinda makes me frustrated when I think she's gonna love something and then she doesn't. Oh well, so happy it wasn't the case, because, this little fellow here needs a little love, time and dedication to be finished. 

I won't lie and say it is the easiest project out there. It isn't, but IT IS one of those so worth the time and work you spend on them! Besides, in case I just scared you away because you've only sewn a t-shirt in your life; don't worry, you can still sew it, the pattern comes with great instructions you just have to follow, and with patience, you'll end up with a great coat for your little one, and you can drool over it.

Don't believe me? Just look how beautiful it gets on the inside? It is fully lined and depending on your choice of fabric it can be pretty warm and cosy too. I used a medium weight cotton for the main, and this absolutely adorable polka dot satin in one of her fave colors. I actually bought this one and the same day, I knew where I'd use it. Not what I bought it for - as I had a cute set of top and shorts, as in pajamas for me, but well, I gave it a use use anyway. 

What about this back? I love the back. I love when I sew a pattern and it has something new to me. I had never sewn a belt loop like this before, so interesting. And just one more thing... How did this girl grow up so much? Or when? Because I look back and it seems she was just a tiny little human not long ago. Her shoulders are nearly as wide as mine, I know I am small, but gosh, she's 9. I made her a size 10, which fits her as you can see, BUT, if it wasn't for the too short sleeves, it would fit me to - as a shorter kinda coat, of course (yes, I do like to try her clothes too...ahahaha). 

And there you go. Happy girl, happy mom. Check out all the features of the coat on Ajaire's shop, both the Mackinaw Coat and the Buzz Puffer are on sale until November 15th, 50% off people!!
