The Butterfly Coat Pattern from Me Sew Crazy

A few weeks ago Jessica from Me Sew Crazy was sweet enough to give me the gift of one of her patterns, The Butterfly Coat. I was in love the moment I saw this pattern. I love the butterfly wings just as much as I love the little ruffles on the back.

This is the first coat I have ever made. And really, it was so easy! Jessica’s pattern was so clear and easy to follow any experienced-beginner sewer could make one. Each step comes with clear directions and has a lot of pictures help you along the way.


The Butterfly Coat pattern is for 18 months thru 5 years and can be customized for each child. You can make the coat with or without the wings and it can even be made with full length sleeves or 3/4 sleeves.

Its one of those patterns that allows you to make the same coat so many different ways.
And I already know that I will be making a ton of these! I mean really, can that sweet little thing get any cuter?! She cried when I told her the coat was a gift for her cousin. Oh geez, break my heart folks! Seeing her love something that I made that much couldn’t have been any more rewarding, but I better start making her one now…and her sister too! Like I said, I see a ton of these in my future.
Thanks for the amazing gift Jessica! Your pattern has already made me step out of my comfort zone and attempt something I had always wanted to do, but feared.

**I just want to make sure that you all know that Jessica in no way asked me to post about her pattern. She may even be a little embarrassed with me doing so (sorry Jessica if you are). I’m posting about her pattern in hopes that all of you out there step out of your comfort zone and try something you have been fearing. Trust me, once you do you will realize how easy it is…and how rewarding!**

    I would never have ventured into the territory of making a coat. It just sounds too daunting, but yours turned out so cute! Maybe someday a coat will be in my future after all. I know my nieces would LOVE butterfly coats. I love the colors you chose. :)
