Do I really have to put a coat on? How come? I'm not cold! And then there was Miles...a rough & tumble biker jacket – that is, the cosy winter version. This is a must-have for any kid's wardrobe (and maybe your own!). Not to worry, this project is easier than it looks. The angled zip adds an edginess, and the collar looks great halfway or all the way open. After all, it’s not that cold yet is it? And of course we’ve added a couple of handy welt pockets on the front. Miles bundles you up nice and warm in style. It's the best of both worlds. Chances are good that you won’t be able to get your son or daughter to take this coat off again. 😀

Fabric advice

Warm and sturdy is the way to go for Miles as long as the fabric is reversible. Tinker to your heart’s content with choices such as reversible shearling, for example (suede or leather on the one side and Teddy fabric on the other). Or go for a thick, tight-knit jersey with, for example, two coloured sides that don’t require any additional edge finish.
