The pattern is IZZY by Farbenmix. It seems that people either absolutely love Farbenmix patterns and use them exclusively, or think that the whole thing is crazy with all the mismatched prints and embellishments galore. I am sort of in between. I think they create happy clothes for children and for the most part it works. Though, it is easy to go overboard. What I like about Farbenmix patterns is that they are very well made. The fit is always superb.
The jacket is lined with fur that is so incredibly soft. The main fabric came from IKEA.
I made my first lined jacket a few years ago. I didn't have any instructions, it seemed pretty self explanatory. And then I got to sleeves and was completely stumped. How in the world do you join the sleeves? Turns out, it is pretty easy. That's how you do it.
1. Insert the inner sleeve inside the outer sleeve. Make sure everything is aligned and fits well together. Pin the sleeves together with a safety pin.
3. Remove the safety pin. The two sleeves now face each other, like two pipes. Pinch the outer and inner sleeves right side together and pin.
5. Pull the sleeves back through the jacket. Repeat on the opposite sleeve.
You are done. Perfectly lined sleeves.
