There's a New Trench Coat in Town (Giveaway Closed)

Winner update: mommypants, #4. Watch your inbox for the pattern. And a big thanks to DMK Easywear who provided the pattern for free, despite my best efforts to buy it for our winner.

There's a new trench coat pattern in town.  It's DearMyKids Easywear pdf Little Red Riding Hood Trench Coat


I was a lucky pattern tester.


The pattern is a lot less intimidating than it looks.  The hood and cape are separate from the jacket.

The hood/cape is also totally reversible.  I like the bright side out.


The jacket is fully lined.  In simple terms, you sew two identical jackets, place them right sides together, and stitch all around the outer edge (then turn right side out).  It's that easy.  The detachable cape and hood were quite simple too.  The pattern comes with step by step pictures to guide you through the process.

 I am giving away a copy of the Lil Trench Coat pdf pattern (sizes 12 mos. to 6 years).  Simply leave a comment below to be entered.  Giveaway open to anyone, anywhere with an email address.  I will announce a winner on Monday November 15th. And for those of you playing along at Sew What, I'll be back Monday instead of Sunday with the final project reveal and a reader showcase.
