A surcote for a young lady

When being eight years old one’s clothes tend to get very short from one year to another. Two years ago I made a sleeveless surcote for my daughter; it was pink with white rabbit fur decorations. Allis loves it! But this year it’s way to small. She ordered a new one from a red fabric she found in a pile at home. Always remember to have fabric at home to choose from😉

Here is the paper pattern, front side.

Gore. Had to make it with a wide top. Really handy when making a sleeveless surcote.

Next step is to take in the ”wings” on the shoulders and decide what to do with the raw edges. Maybe some edge weaving? Or some dark brow fur lining around the armholes? Help me, what do you think? And of course pressing!
