Classic Spring Toddler Jacket Thursday, May 7 2015
Creation: Classic Spring Toddler Jacket
Fabrics Used: Chili Pepper Red Twill
The Visionary: Kelli, Truebias.com
Our Thoughts: Kelli at Truebias.com made a jacket that is too cool for school for her adorable toddler using our Chili Pepper Red Twill. 
I have been wanting to make my daughter a classic jacket for the spring so I knew that this would be the perfect opportunity to do so. I chose to use the 100% organic cotton twill in chili pepper red from Organic Cotton Plus.  It’s a beautiful, sturdy fabric. It washed up well and has the perfect amount of crispness for such a project. I was very excited about the color once it arrived as well – a deep red that looks rich and classic, although I must admit that it was a hard decision to choose a color. Not only am I thrilled with how the jacket turned out, but I also love the fact that I know that the fabric that it is created with is an eco-friendly product, and a healthy choice for her skin.
Sizing:  One of the best things about this pattern is the sizing.  My daughter measured right as a 4T according to their chart and the jacket actually fits her correctly.  It has a nice slim cut to it too.  This never happens with big name pattern companies so I was very pleasantly surprised.
Changes Made: I cut 1/8″off of the outside edge of the bottom collar piece to help it roll correctly (something that I picked up at patternmaking class).  I also omitted the back tab and shifted the button placement so that the bottom on was about 2 inches lower.
The Good:  I really love the fit and design of this jacket.  It’s super classic and chic.  I am mad at myself for cutting straight into the pattern because I can see myself making my daughter a new one of these every spring in a new fabric.  Once again I am just so pleased with the fit.
