We saved this dramatic red coat for the last one in this holiday series. This coat is an eye-catcher! Vittoria is modeling the coat in San Francisco's Union Square. Scroll down for the story about this coat and more pics!
And ... Happy New Year! We'll see you all in 💫 🎆🎊🎉 2024! 🎊🎉💫 🎆
This coat was made to match Rachel's red heart coat, which was not designed as a holiday garment. Rachel added green lining to Vittoria's coat to make the mini-version of the coat more Christmas-y.
Rachel used square and rectangle piecing on a child's vintage coat pattern. The collar and sleeves have a double row of top-stitching and the back has a single pleat to add fullness to the bottom of garment.
Our neighbor did a great job modeling this one!
