While putting off cutting out the Feliz Party Dress (I'm intimidated!), I realized Abigail needed something for fall/mild winter days. Googled around, asked questions as to what to use for outdoors that would also be carseat friendly - suddenly remembered - I SELL these lovely carseat/babywearing ponchos!
Even developed my own pattern. So I did a little stash diving and came up with this last evening:
The outer layer is embossed minky in a plum colour, inner is arctic fleece. I cut the inners longer and rolled the hems to the outside, and did a white edging for the hood too. Closes in front and back with snaps (back can be open and out from behind in the carseat, or when babywearing facing out). Perfect length so she doesn't get frustrated with her hands stuck underneath. I will probably put a thin sweater underneath if it's cooler.
