I find it very hard to find outerware for children. Normally they are loaded with way too many details, little prints, a ton of zippers and on top of that they are way to thick for our climate. I just want it simple, and I wanted a big pocket in the front for gloves so they won't get lost. Back in September when I started looking for a jacket for Seth, I just couldn't find one, so I had to get back to the sewing machine and make one. Now I am pretty happy because next year I don't have to spend hours trying to find one, I will just make it, which in the end is probably just as time consuming, but a lot more fun and definitely more satisfying.
I pair it with a big chunky sweater beneath for ekstra warmt, and the plan is that he can wear it this spring as a light jacket without the chunky sweater or just with a lighter one.
I made a zipper in the side so it would make it easyer for him to take it on and of. At the zipper I attached a little pool ball (number 2) once part of a keyring. Anoraks are not the easiest jacket for someone who has just turned 3 and started kindergarten, but it just looks so good. You see it is not always about beeing practical... looks count you know...

Oh yes the boots... can't make those. But I was so lucky, I found RAP leatherboots in cognac with a goretex lining, so no cold and wet feet. A size 27... he grows fast.
The alarm just bipped... bread in the oven, gotta go. See you...
