Pea Coat for my Sweet Pea

So here in California it hardly goes below 45 degrees, so it is pretty easy to make a warm winter coat for my kids without having to invest in goose down or heavy lining!  I chose McCall's 5743 for my oldest.

The jacket pattern is unlined, so I lined it with flannel, and the outer is a charcoal fleece. As you can see, I also used bigger button and spaced them out more.

It is warm enough for our California winter, and my daughter can button it herself with the large buttons!  Success!!
