The Uptown Girl jacket will keep your little girl warm and cosy, whilst still looking absolutely stunning during the cooler weather.
The jacket is completely reversible, ensuring maximum wear and versatility.
Soft, gentle gathers on both the front and back of the jacket add a feminine touch without being too fussy or frilly.
This jacket is destined to cuddle your little girl with stylish flair!
I’m really happy with how this jacket turned out. It is soft and comfortable, quick and easy to sew and will give you an excuse to still be able to wear designer cotton fabric during the cold weather!
I wasn’t planning on the jacket being reversible, but as I was designing and sewing it just seemed like such a practical and resourceful option to include…I seem to have a thing for making reversible items of clothing – it just makes sense to me to do it if you can!
The jacket is padded with a light-weight pellon. It works really nicely, not too thick but still nice and warm. There are lots of options for change here though – you could go with a thicker pellon or wadding for a puffier jacket or could use a home decorating weight fabric or cord and no padding for a lighter, warmer weather jacket.
So, if you are looking for a fun, stylish winter sewing project for your little girl, then look no further! Head over to the Make It Perfect website to see more photos and check out the fabric requirements for Uptown Girl.
