Junebug's Jacket and a Heidi & Finn Pattern Giveaway!

Heidi and Finn has graciously offered to share a FREE pattern with two lucky readers--more info below!

Junebug's Jacket

First of all, thanks to all of you who weighed in on the choosing of fabric for Junebug's jacket.  The general consensus was to use the mustard fabric as the lining fabric--which I was totally on board with!  (Have no fear, the other fabric will be used for an upcoming skirt.)  Once the jacket was constructed, I decided to use a hook and eye closure instead of the orange buttons.  I still love the orange buttons for this jacket, but the closure just needed to be slightly more dramatic than plain ol' buttons.  I am SO happy with the end result!


Swing JacketI shared before that the pattern was from the Etsy shop Heidi and Finn and boy, was it a good pattern.  The instructions were clear and concise and there were fabulous pictures that really made everything "click" for a new seamstress like me.  Heidi and Finn has graciously offered to share a FREE pattern with two lucky readers--read on for more info.



First, let me share Junebug's Jacket.  Oh, I am SOO excited!


Junebug's Jacket



Junebug Jacket 2

The closure is supposed to be a big fabric bow, but Junebug is not the biggest fan of big bulky pieces on her clothing so I adapted to suit her pickiness.  (I personally loved the bow featured on the pattern.)

  2. Love the coat! Beautiful lining and I love what you did for the closure.

    My favorite pattern in the cowl-neck jumper, I think. But everything is so cute!

  3. I love the coat! I saw it on Pinterest a little while ago and admired it. It was a tough choice but I think I'd go with the Ruffle Jumper Dress pattern. So versatile.

  4. Heidi and Finn are my favorite! I love the green with the yellow lining. It is beautiful!

  5. It really turned out so cute! I love the closure you chose, actually. The bow is super cute, but looks a little cumbersome. (i love that word.) I really like their little Hampton hat, too! This coat looks like it borders on being reversible! yes? maybe? are the sleeves lined? LOVE it. You did an awesome job!

  17. I really like the coat! The green is so soothing.

    I like that you could do anything with by just changing up the fabric and accessories. I'll have to check to see if I could make it in a larger size for my daughter. But I certainly have one new niece and possibily a second on the way that would like a gifted coat. Coats are so expensive brand new!!

  18. I want to be as well-dressed as your little girl! Great job, again!

  20. this jacket is just too sweet! I love the lining that she incorporated into the design. Sometimes, when I see things like this, I wish I sewed.

    ReplyDelete
  35. E will look so stinkin' cute in this coat. I wish we could all shrink down to her size so we could wear it, too (and look as good as her!). So I don't have kids (yet), but I do have family/friends who do, and would love a handmade coat like this one. :)

  41. I have little boys, and I love their patterns because they are stylishly unisex. I was going to say the everyday coat is my fav. I see it in wide wale corduroy with wooden buttons and a wool tartan lining but now seeing yours without the bow I'm loving the side closure I'd just change the collar to a hood, presto boy coat!
