What materials did you use? Lovely soft knit and a quilting cotton for lining & binding. The pattern is from the Japanese sewing book, Happy Homemade, Sew Chic Kids (available in English, thankfully).

What are you most proud of? The original pattern calls for a woven fabric; I opted to make this version in a knit. I also added the lining for the hood (which is unlined in the original pattern).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The pattern calls for 1/4" tri-folded bias strip for the neck binding. I find that too fiddly to cleanly execute. I was able to use 1/2" single-fold bias tape without compromising the final look of the garment.
