Chic Swing Coat

I had a sweet friend from Florida email me and ask if I could make this jacket for her little girl {from Heidi and Finn on Etsy}.

Yes, yes and yes!
While I am waiting for the fabric to come in, I thought I should make a test one {wink}.
My Aunt Laura had recently brought over things from her mother and grandmother’s sewing room that she thought I could use.  In it was gorgeous Italian velveteen that I am guessing to be around 30 years old.
Guess what Princess Fiona got?
Originally I was going to line it in a brown damask I had on hand – but then found this and loved the colors.
Now to get the song Raspberry Beret out of my head…
