I made my babywearing coat! (added another pic)

I finally got to sit down and sew my coat. I used my maternity coat which was just a regular one that was 2 sizes too big. It's a bit tight around the waist with her legs there, but otherwise, I think it turned out great! We have to wait at the bus stop for older brother so it'll come in handy this winter



Here's another pic It was COLD this morning!

That's the only one I have so far as it was 70* here today so I was just trying it on to make sure it fit. I will take more next week cause it's supposed to be cold again.

Re: I made my babywearing coat!

Thanks! Now I want to make more, haha. I wonder if I could find a tutorial on how to make a front carry coat.

So cool! Did you use a pattern? It's like an "up-cycled" thing right? Turning a maternity cost into a baby wearing coat. Love it!
