Keeping Warm While Babywearing2:07 pm
Over the years I've owned several babywearing coats. This one, so far is my favourite.
I bought this blue coat in the January Sales with the intention of making it into a babywearing coat.
I bought it one size too big, and for the bargain price of £25.
I then bought some gorgeous woven wool fabric to add panels into the coat, and using the seams on the back of the coat as a guide, worked out where I needed to put the panels.
There was lots of trying on, and lots of figuring out as I went.
I needed to add panels in the side seams of the coat to account for Ernest's feet.
As usual, now I've finished it, I can think how I would do things differently if I made another...and I might...
I have been finding myself mentally taking apart every coat I see on the street or on the bus.
