i have this wool that i love, i bought it planning on making a dress but i've decided to use a shirting i have to make a long sleeved dress for dd instead and to use this wool as outerwear.

will this work as a paletot? it's light-medium weight.  i'd do a quilted wool lining.




 if i have enough left over i'll make a winter hood as well, not necessarily the same for both girls lol.

Decide how you feel about the plaid, with the flare of a paletot over your skirts matching is iffy.

Real experts will be along with real advice!

i'm not really planning on matching the plaids too closely, lol.

i'm hoping to use a pattern from godey's, i just haven't figured out yet how to transfer the engraving to a pattern i can work with.

I just used that pattern!  My daughter is about a modern little girls' size 8-10.  Would that be helpful to you?  What is your time frame on the project?
