Jackets with Bias Binding

I haven't taken the girls to Coles in months, usually I can get everything at the local supermarket, but I needed to stock up on things I can't get there. I thought it would be a disaster. They screamed in the car and took off their socks and shoes. So I filled them full of banana and lamington and we went in and unbelievably there was a double trolley sitting right there and when I got to the checkout there was another double trolley on the other side so I could just transfer the girls straight into it. So the fridge and the pantry are full and we are all still smiling.

I finished the jackets for the girls. They are made from some quilted cotton I had in my stash and lined with cotton which I also used for the bias binding. The buttons are wooden ones my sister bought back from Sydney for me. They are pretty big, but it means they can wear them for ages. The pattern was roughly based on New Look 6333.

Have you heard about "The Secret"? Or rather "The Chaser's ..." take on The Secret? You must have visualised the double trolley and there it was! Those jackets are just divine. I love them. And the button just makes them. Could have used them here in Melbourne today. Winter came a day early.

Gorgeous Kate. They will be so warm and perfect for Bridgy. We are nearly all recovered. Well I am, which means the family is back on track. I have made Ella a few skirts so will show them off on our next playdate. Really like those jackets. Emma

Oh the girls jackets are just so beautiful, and adorable too. I love love love the fabric you used, and the buttons look great too. Well done, only one question though - does it come in a size 8?
