Ooh La La! A Fancy Nancy Jacket

(Image via Dear My Kids)

I was really lucky last week, I won the Sewing Dork's (please do pop over and pay a visit, she's a hoot!) Dear My Kids pattern giveaway. For my prize, I picked the Chic Vintage Swing Jacket.  (The Sewing Dork also made this jacket, you can peak at her project here).

I made a 6T jacket out of Fancy Nancy satin flannel back and hot pink broad cloth.  [I have posted before about how I am torn about using licensed fabric, but right now Miss Lily just prefers Fancy Nancy to Amy B (hand me a tissue).]

This is the fourth reversible garment I have sewn in four weeks (tunic, capelet, apron).  I just love reversible clothing. When you make reversible clothes, you really feel like you are moving through that  fabric stash. I also like reversible clothing because all of the seams are neatly covered and the garments have such a professional look. 

Here is how the jacket turned out.

Here is the photoshoot.  Made someone happy.

That's why I sew.

  1. This is really cute. My three year old would love it. I have similar feelings about the licensed fabrics, but those are the fabrics my daughter always wants to show me at the store.

  2. Oh my! Excellent choice of fabric, beautiful pattern and gorgeous girl!!
    Neat job!

  3. Aww that's adorable. Great job! I love those shiny buttons on the first one. :)

  4. What a cute jacket (and model!) You make licensed fabric look classy. :)

  5. I love the shape of the jacket. Thank you for sharing!

  6. Just stopping by from Tatertots and Jello. Such a cute jacket ~wish I could sew :)


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear what you think!
