Fall is here. The kindos and I have enjoyed spending long mornings and afternoons outside. There's leafs and sticks that have blown off the trees and how cute are munchkins when they're all bundled up. I love it. The pumpkin loves her new jacket too. I saw the awsome jacket that Zooey Daschanel wore in Yes Man and I knew that the pumpkin would have one too. I think that I'll try to make a matching one for myself. I used Vegbee's Fair weather Jacket pattern but ditched the front belt. I think that it turned out great. The best part is that it cost me less than 10 bucks to make. I got 2 yards of navy blue linen for the shell at $ 1.97 per yard and the flannel lining was $1.98 a yard for 2 yards. YEA!

The inspiration for the jacket.
My version made for a 2 year old.
