Seriously the easiest and cutest housecoat on the market. The clean finishes make this one a beauty. Several options let you pick you animal or just make it plain. What a fun gift to make the little girls or even boys in your life.
The Arctic Fox is a fun housecoat pattern not only for our own kidlets and young ladies, but also for gift-giving. The simple version is good for all ages and easily accented with gorgeous fabric choices in minky or fleece. Choose fox, bear or rabbit ears to take it up a notch. The bound seams keep the inside looking as good as the outside and a hanging loop leaves no excuses for leaving it on the floor! This pattern is also available in a bundle with the Starry Night PJ pattern.

Everyone loves a cozy robe, but this housecoat is exceptional! I LOVE the finishing touches (and have even copied the same techniques to improve patterns from other designers). It's just as pretty on the inside. The oversized hood and roomy fit makes this a layering dream. The optional ears add a unique, one-of-a-kind detail that can be personalized in countless ways. Great tutorial for easy assembly and the pattern pieces fit together perfectly. The Arctic Fox Housecoat is a great addition to my pattern stash. And did I mention my daughter wears it EVERYDAY?!?! It's well loved! And my youngest son is begging for one, too.
Each pattern I've sewn is so brilliantly crafted that it encloses all or most seams. They are teaching me new tricks in sewing garments and my game has definitely improved! This pattern has multiple options to choose from. and is so cute & cozy! The downside to this is my kids may never take them off!
