The Gabriella's Coat

Hi everyone! Today I am joining the Bella Sunshine Designs Birthday Blog Tour day 3

For this tour I was allowed to pick any of Bella Sunshine's patterns and I knew immediately what I was going to make: the Gabriella's coat! I was sad that I couldn't apply to test it and I was waiting for its release to make it for my girls. They are needing new coats and warm jackets, and this pattern looked perfect!

Gabriella's Winter Coat, pattern by Bella Sunshine Designs.

Double faced wool felt. One side looks dotted and the other looks striped. I love it! I found it as remnant at my local fabric store (Feira dos Tecidos) and I wish they had more yardage because I wanted to use it to make a coat for myself, but they only had one meter of it.

I turned the coat into a jacket length. It's an easy hack. I made a size 5 width combined with a size 7 length, for this slim 7 year-old. To make it a jacket I have cut the bottom pieces along the 12 months cutting line. 

The instructions are thorough and easy to follow If you are looking for a girls coat pattern this is a great one!

  1. Your jacket is beautiful! Look at those perfectly lined seams!!

  2. I love this jacket-- the fabric is so beautiful. I often am reluctant to make coats because I rarely see fabric that is a nice weight and color for a kids coat. I also love the Coffee Shop Lace dress-- so cute!

  3. Great coat, and pretty cute model also! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oops, and I like the Rebel girl party dress!

  5. This is such a great sew Sara! and what a wonderful fabric choice!
