Gorgous jacket with a great fabric find. I have this on my "to do" list for my DD, but she won't be nearly as thrilled as your DD as my suede/sherpa is brown-ivory. Thanks for the heads up on the sizing.

What a fun jacket! Thanks for pointing out what those piles of Suede backed sherpa in my local fabric store can be used for...Love the color....lucky daughter!

Sweet! What a fun review to read. You make a really vital point about reading the cover photo on the pattern with a harsh eye. I've been known to be tricked by weird poses and cute accesories. New Look is a fiend for doing this. That fabric is beautiful.

Very cute jacket! I just showed this one to my 11yo DD who promptly requested one.

Thanks for the review! I have this pattern and love the jacket. You sure got a great price on the fabric. I found it by me at Hancock but the price is $29.00 per yard - even at 25% off, that is pretty pricey for a kid's jacket. Maybe next season I will find it for less. Great review. GREAT jacket!!

Belinda, that is gorgeous! I would never have noticed the zipper, the pink is in the same color family, so it blends well. I wish I could find suede/sherpa in those colors, just beautiful. . .

Belinda, what a wonderful jacket! I'm sure it must feel like an expensive treasure for DD. Loved your review -- helpful and quite entertaining. I'll be sure to wave when I see you on the street. ;)

What a great jacket and so nicely finished! Thanks for the info on the sleeve length, I get tricked by pattern photos too!

What a beautiful, well-designed jacket. You did a fabulous job. I agree with you about spending so much time on something for a little one. They outgrow anything so quickly. I try to make beautiful, but simple things for my granddaughters too.

Great review - and I promise if I see you on the street I'll fuss at her too! Been there. You can really tell this is yummy fabric from the picture. I want one too!

That is the most scrumptious pink suede. Lucky DD. Must be so fun to have little girls.

WAAAA, I can't see the pictures. I've made this jacket twice! I used a black "mink" faux fur and fuschia "leapard" faux fur and I lined it both times. It's worth the effort to me because every time someone compliments her on it, she smiles really big and says "my MOM made it for me".

Great review and a beautiful jacket! What a lucky girl!

Beautiful work. I think the light pink zipper looks like a nice design element. Geez, you and others make me hesitate to post reviews for quick and easy clothes for my grandchildren! Your jacket is very special.

What a stunner. DD must be delirious with glee. Very helpful review.

Your jacket looks great! I know what a pain those bulk faux suedes can be. I made 2 suede backed fur coats a couple of months ago. My teenage niece saw mine and loved it-but I don't plan to fool with that stuff again any time soon. Thanks for the review-there are no little girls in our family but it was still a fun read! Kay

I can finally see the picture, I don't know what the problem was... The jacket is beautiful, your daughter must love it, and if she doesn't, mine would!!!

Belinda, this is a beautiful jacket for your daughter. Where do you get Lizzie McGuire patterns in Australia? My daughter also loves these patterns, but we are always told they are unavailable in Australia. Thanks, Jac.

Thanks to everyone for the lovely comments. Jac, I am very lucky to have a dear friend in the US who shares my passion for sewing. She is kind enough to buy the LMcG patterns for me at the 99c sale and post them over. You could always buy them over the internet, although they are a lot more expensive.

Love the fact that you tell us to go "beyond the pattern instructions"! Why don't they start giving us more professional finishing techniques? Unless you have read books (I have) you don't know there are many simple finishes that make garments go from homemade to wonder teenagers won't sew anymore. Another superb review!
