Another Jacket For Delilah

I already showed you a jacket made for Delilah HERE.

After a visit to Whipstitch Fabrics, I was raring to go on another one. Here it is!

I'll post action shots of my toddler in it as soon as possible. Or, well, since she's two, perhaps pictures of her refusing to put it on. I'd say we have a 50/50 shot these days! Perhaps if I bribe her with Halloween candy.....

Last night we gave Delilah a little Krackle bar from her Halloween stash. We've never given her a chocolate bar. We may have just created a monster!

In the meantime, here is the back of the jacket, and a shot of the lapel.
Yeah, I know you've seen the jacket I made like this before. But seriously, I am SO PROUD of this jacket. I just love it. The lining is the softest City Weekend knit, a new line of fabric released by Moda for Oliver and S. The print is Toadstools in lime by Alexander Henry. Both fabrics bought from Whipstitch Fabrics.
(Can I rave about Whipstitch some more?! Seriously EVERY fabric in the shop is gorgeous. If you can't make it to Atlanta, they sell on Etsy, here.)
(I am not affiliated with Whipstitch, nor do I get any compensation for raving about the shop. I just think they have great fabric. I may a teeny non-intimate sewing crush on Deborah Moebes!)
This pattern is suitable for beginner sewists. It's Burda 9780 and check it - no sleeves to set in!
Oh, did you hear? Liesli from Oliver and S is coming out with a book! I can't wait!
Later skaters,

make it wear it


  1. Oh that is so cute! I love the fabric. It looks so comfy. It looks like Delilah has a new love. CHOCOLATE! I have to agree with her there! I just hope she doesn't decide to pair it with her new jacket!

  2. Janimal, this is gorgeous! Love the little toadstools!


I love comments!
