Molly Jacket

I had big plans to knit all the girls something new before winter, but the weather has started to turn cold and I have only managed one cardigan so far so I realised I needed to get sewing. I thought I would start with a few more Molly Jackets for autumn. Milly loves the one I made for her so I made two more for Grace and Evie.
Both were made with some cotton drill from Spotlight and lined with some Spotlight quilting fabric I found very cheaply a couple of years ago. I did want to use bigger buttons, but the button racks were pretty bare in Spotlight when I was last there. There was no white or navy and these were the only navy ones in Textile Traders.
I love these jackets, they are great over dresses or jeans, I might have to try a version with long sleeves.

I agree with Suzanne, another I'd like in my size. Hope the chicken pox has passed. We had it here x 2 last year despite immunisations. Miss A was a week off her booster injection!

These are now on my list! Especially as I've found it impossible to find cardigans I like in the shops this year!
Thanks for the inspiration!
