Make It Perfect Downtown Boy Jacket
Fully reversible boy's jacket, size three. Made using cotton quilting fabric outer and inner with a layer of cotton wading (instead of the recommended pellon) in between. Pattern is the Downtown Boy Jacket with fabric purchased from Sewco. Kaiden, although not really wanting to pose properly for the camera today, loves the jacket, especially the hood. The jacket is very thick and warm (perhaps too much for our Brissie weather!) and has a bit of room to grow into so hopefully will be worn next winter as well before handing down to Jordan. I don't know whether I'd be bothered making it fully reversible (ie sew pockets on the inner layer) next time.
