This is my girl coat pattern contribution to the Pattern Anthology Sun & Surf Collection: the Santa Monica Cinch!
This is designed for spring with a swingy trapeze style shape and a fun cinched ribbon feature in the back. You can also make a ribbon out of fabric for a different look. I loved designing my first girl’s spring coat. I wanted it to be casual with fun little details. The ribbon in the back is the first feature I added. Cinch it up for a more fitted jacket or leave it look for more swing. There are also little pleats along the bottom of the coat to give the bottom of the jacket a little flare. You know how I adore pleats!
