It resulted in this awesome, (super professional looking ;) ) little jacket! It's much lighter than the old one, and warmer too. She was super excited over it! It's adorable how happy she gets when she gets her jacket on, the little tail works like a fan!
We went with a contrasting, neon yellow band this year, and also neon yellow seams, it looks really cool!
And of course most adorable Nisse came to join us when he heard we were out playing.
The constructions is pretty much the same as the old one, basically a rectangle that I've added a bit of a rounded section over the tush, and a hollow out section which will allow for a slight overlap around the neck for closure. Sorry for the poor quality of this photo, didn't think to take one before I gifted it.
This time I attached the "belt" section in the seams like so, for a nicer look.
It's so much fun to sew clothes for Jackie, she's so very grateful not having to be as cold, and she loves when we take it out for her to put on.
Old jacket for comparison.
