Pee / Pea coat

Toilet training number 2. He has to have it nailed by the time he starts at nursery in September. I do not want to be the mummy who has to keep picking up a sealed plastic bag of wet pants at the door! Good progress last 2 days. Boy does some warm weather help.
But I am already thinking ahead to autumn with some new duds for him… This is a jacket made from what I could salvage from my stockroom late last night whilst watching Wallander on iplayer. The outer is a faded denim moleskin fabric, very soft and thick with a subtle check. The inside is from a big pile of woollen fabric from my ma’s attic. The pattern goes up to age 6 so number 1 may get one too. It is adapted (most appropriately given our current focus) from the pea coat pattern from Dear My Kids on Etsy and the instructions could not have been easier. Will be looking through their catalogue again.
