A coat for Delilah

On my sewing table now is Princess Anna's coronation dress from the movie Frozen.  It's ambitious....so we'll see!

Recently I've finished a few other projects.  I'm excited to show off my little man in his suit.  He danced at a wedding in it and looked a bit like a tiny drunk banker!  I haven't seen all the pictures from the wedding yet but I can hardly wait.

In the mean time, let me show up my precious girl.

Recently I made a pink, soft, faux shearling, coat. 

The pattern is New Look 6927.  Its a size 4, so just barely fits my 5 year old princess.

Because I used a faux shearling, I didn't use facings.  And just folded over the shearing to the right side to appear as a trim.  A collar with the shearling would be too bulky, so this coat ended up VERY easy to put together.
Except - shearling.  I have bits and pieces of the stuff floating around.  I trimmed each seam edge before sewing together to eliminate bulky seams.  That took more time than the actual sewing!
Its a pretty coat.  Though D will likely only wear it a few times.  There is another little girl in the neighborhood much younger than D, so she may get this coat...we'll see.
Stay tuned to see how managed the Princess Anna coronation dress.  Oh my it is a labor of love!
Later skater,
