Aspiring Designer: Designs by Call Ajaire

I'm Ajaire from Call Ajaire and I'm super excited to kick off this AD Challenge with the new Designs by Call Ajaire Mackinaw Coat.

The Mackinaw Coat is an updated version of the classic Mackinaw Coat style with all the details to make it the perfect on-trend winter coat for your girl or boy.  In sizes 12 months to 12 years, there are four views of the coat with the option of the double breast closing either left over right (boys) or right over left (girls).  The traditional shawl collar has either a dramatic version or a slimmer collar option.

The tutorial walks you through some more advanced coat making techniques like bagging the lining and optional bound buttonholes, but the main pattern is considered a confident beginner level.  There will be a sew along on Call Ajaire starting next week, so if you prefer picture tutorials over illustrated ones, you'll have the option to check it out as well.  Here are just a few pics from the amazing testing group which are also included in the inspiration gallery of the pattern:

From today through February 21st, you can use the code MACK15 to get 15% off the pattern from the Designs by Call Ajaire Etsy Shop, but if you join the Designs by Call Ajaire Facebook Group you'll have access to a group special 25% off coupon to use during the release period!
