Wonderful World of Disney Sewing – Winter Jacket

Standard

You know how it is . . . you go into the fabric store just for a zipper and another cute Disney fabric lures you in!  This time it was at Hancock’s where we spotted this Mickey and Friends Cupcakes fine wale corduroy fabric.

We already had a pattern at home – Simplicity 1477 which is an adorable fox or raccoon jacket pattern that I bought last year.

It only took a little modification to make the pattern suit the cupcake fabric.

Instead of fox or raccoon ears, we made Mickey ears for the hood!

The jacket is lined and interfaced with fusible fleece, so should be plenty warm for southern winters.  Choosing the lining was a dilemma.  All the typical lining materials were too dull looking for such a whimsical jacket.  So, when we spotted some wonderfully soft brushed back princess themed satin in the perfect shade of pink, we went for it.

It does kind of look like an explosion of pink and Disney, but that sounds like just the kind of thing that a 3 year old would love to wear!

  1. Do you by any chance have any of the cupcake fabric left I could buy from you? I am making matching skirts for my nieces and I ran out before I could cut the yoke for the 3t size.
