Sewing kids clothes again....day 4

Yesterday I was able to resume my Kids Clothing Week sewing.  Since I missed 3 days, I am gonna have Kids Clothing Week and a half and extend it on until Wednesday.  Just because my To-Do list is still longer than my Christmas List--yikes!!!  I finally finished this little jacket for Em.  The pattern is from Dear My Kids and I sewed along with the group over at From an Igloo.  It was not SUPER hard sewing, but a lot of firsts for me.  I am glad I stuck with it and hope I like it enough on the kiddo to actually have her wear it.
I did everything just like the pattern except I did not make button holes.  I sewed the buttons on and then just added some velcro to close it---I cannot imagine Em standing still for buttons every time we put her coat on----or for 2 seconds consecutively at that. 

The lining is green with little white dots. 

I just had to include a picture of the back because this is the part that caused the most bad words.....lets just say I used my un-picker a little bit.

And that is her little coat.  THE END:)
