I have wanted to make a circular jacket for ages but I know I have no stamina to make one in a 2X so I made on for Dora instead. :rofl

I love these things... :sigh

I might go back and add sleeves but I like it as is.

There might be a pattern for this but it is rather straight forward as shown.

When in doubt... make a hat.      And feel free to *pin* me.

Very pretty! I have never seen a circular jacket before and now I am in love with the idea. But I don't know that I would have the energy to make a 2X either and that is what I need unless a miracle happens. :)

I love that jacket! I know what you mean about patience for big things though. I have never made any adult items other than slippers. LOL

Oh my gosh that is so cute. I would love to see a pattern on this when ever you get a chance. Lucy would love to have this for her Dora doll.
There will always be people who say mean words because you are different and sometimes their minds cannot be changed.

But there are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Get outta town!!!! I had no idea what you meant until I saw the flat picture. That is just too too cool!!!!!!!!!!!! It is really sweet on, and then BAM, you see it is made in a flat round and that is mind blowing. Darski, you never cease to amaze me and cause me to smile at your Dora designs! Super cute.
