As she stands up she can raise her arms to flip the coat up over her head and down into place. Ta-da!! I'm sure it sounds more complicated/time consuming than it is. It's really easy and most kids get a kick out of it and it will save you a little time not having to fumble around for that other sleeve.
This is going to change my life...

We seriously endure about five full minutes of wining/sobbing when my son has to put on a coat. I'm horrible at motor planning AND at verbalizing motor planning - so my poor DS and I get so frustrated with eachother. :-(
