Sewing with Sherpa

Kwik Sew jacket pattern #2994 is a snap to make with Sherpa fabric for your little girl. If you are sewing for dolly, Simplicity #3551 is a great choice for a matching coat.

Both coats were sewn wrong sides together with ¼” exposed seams. I used the BERNINA Dual Feed on my BERNINA 830, with Patchwork Foot #37D. Non-stick Zigzag Foot #52 and Leather Roller Foot #55 would also be good choices. For stitching I used a 90/14 Universal needle, long-staple polyester thread, and a straight stitch with a length of 2.6mm.

Buttons and standard buttonholes were used for the little girl’s jacket. To help the buttonholes stitch smoothly I placed tear-away stabilizer under the sherpa, then simply tore it away when the buttonholes were done. Dolly’s jacket closes with hook-and-loop tape.

The girls love to wear their coats on stormy days, and you’ll love how easy they are to make!
