Whew! Finished Joey's trench coat and the pants for his Easter outfit. These two patterns (Secret Agent trench and Art Museum trousers) were pretty time-consuming. I kept switching off between them so it felt like I wasn't getting anywhere, but finally at midnight last night I finished them both off.
The good news is, they're time-consuming because they're full of adorable details that make the finished product look awesome. And of course, being Oliver + S patterns, they're super clear and easy to follow. I was intimidated by the welt pockets on the pants, but by the second one I was basically a pro.
I made size 12-18 months for both, based on Joey's measurements, with 18-24 month length on the pants. They fit really well! The pants are a bit snug over the cloth diaper butt, but that's normal for basically all pants. I also ended up chopping off nearly all the extra length on the hem.
I made the trench coat with a classic khaki twill and grass green bias binding to finish the seams on the inside. The cool thing about this pattern is it's unisex, and incredibly customizable just by switching up the fabrics! I really wanted just a plain trench, but maybe next time I'll do something a little crazier.
(I love that little kick pleat in the back!) The pants are a pinstriped denim from Robert Kaufman Railroad Denim (which is awesome, by the way). They don't photograph well (what is it with stripes and cameras?) but they are way cute in person.
