Little blue pea coat

I bought Neve a long, black pea coat of sorts after Christmas. She loves it because it is what fashion girls wear.
Then I bought one, a red one, because, you know, I wanted to be cool too.
And then, the Neve doll needed one. Of course. In blue.

Now they can go out in style.

I think it's a simplicity pattern. The fabric came from a 2nd hand wool coat.

The buttons came from a wool sweater that has found a new life as a pair of mittens.

Much fun, easy to do, and I can't wait to make another, in red. Collar will be better next time.

I think she likes it.
