Oliver & Olivia Nautical Peacoat

The Oliver & Olivia Pea Coat

Today I’m participating in the Peek A Boo Pattern Tour for the second time. I participated last summer when I made the red white & turqouise Santa Monica bikini for Gigi. I loved how it turned out!
I really enjoy working with Amy’s designs from Peek A Boo Patterns. The fit is good and most importantly Amy’s directions are excellent.

 I’ve made coats before, but this was by far the simplest and fastest coat I have ever sewn up. I followed Amy’s directions and this coat took me four hours to make including my cutting time. I have had a lot of problems with collars and linings in the past and this time I just seemed to get it without having to consult a plethora of my sewing books for further advice.

I used some ticking fabric but was a little short so I added the grey sleeves and the grey collar. The lining is cotton flannel and the buttons were bought on Etsy. I think they are Japanese.

This little jacket was made entirely by machine. I was sort of in a hurry since I just started it yesterday and only had a few hours to make and finish it because I had to get things ready for my sons birthday dinner. I can’t believe he is 19….!

If I had had more time I would have done a few things by hand like the sleeve hem.

    Oh my goodness!! I can’t get over those amazing buttons and stripes in the pea coat and how they play together so perfectly. Totally featuring you tomorrow. Your little model is the cutest, too!
