My little girl has a lot of coats! But we always have some extra space for a short, playful and smart new one. All of Odetteā€™s other coats always get stuck on her bike, so this one should be the perfect solution.

The result is a short version of the Louisa Coat. A very simple but accurate adjustment.

I wanted both a flexible, playful and smart coat, so I have chosen a soft pink fabric, finished with silver paspel.

The back and front form the basic parts.

I have shortened both front and back and I also adjusted the pocket(s).

Simple and easy I know. But that was all this model needed.

Saint Nicholas will bring my twins a new bike so we had to make sure that the coat was warm and comfy enough, just like a bearskin. I added batting and some sleeve bands to prevent the wind from coming in.

The lining really is the finishing touch, very Odette-style!
