In searching for a dress pattern to make my little girl the other day, I ran across this super cute pattern for a girls coat called Uptown Girl - have you seen it before? (check out the Make it Perfect Blog/website for more info and more cute patterns). Never did find a dress pattern, but I thought this coat was simply adorable so I ordered the pattern and had the opportunity to make two of them this past weekend- one for my niece for her birthday and one for my girl.
It is such an adorable spring coat and quite easy to make. Here are few pictures of it - you'll notice it is completely reversible too! Now we just need the snow to all melt and for it to get a bit warmer outside so she can wear it.
By the way, does anyone have any recommendations for any super cute dress patterns for little girls? I have a couple already (by Sandi Henderson) but was looking for something a little different- maybe there is a pattern that you really like and have enjoyed making? If you would be kind enough to share your favorite, leave me a comment, as I would love to check some different ones out. Thanks so much and take care! - Jennifer
