Eva's Coat

I finished the coat for Eva. I used bias binding last year on some coats and loved the way it looked so I used it on this coat too. It is such a simple way to finish off a lined coat.


It's a little big, but that is the great thing about sewing for babies - you know it won't be long until it fits them.

Hey Kate, that is so cute! Love the things you are sewing for the girls! Did you use your fabric as Bias Binding? or buy the bias binding to match?
