Love this coat!

I really enjoy the process of sewing a Pixie Pea Coat and it’s much easier than you think it will be. The pattern and instructions are fabulous and the fit is great. My 4 year old loves both of his coats and we get lots of compliments when out and about. I can’t recommend this pattern enough.

What a Joy!

I absolutely loved making this pattern. The instructions are clear, concise and thoughtful. I especially loved the suggestions of embroidery and some sustainable resource guides. I also really appreciate the generous range for sizing, our munchkins just grow so fast so I really love it when I can see a pattern grow with my little ones tastes and preferences. I will definitely make this again, and I will definitely be making Twig and Tale again 🌼

Pixie pea coat

I love the shape of the coat and the way it is buttoned...
I feel that the pixie hood is a little on the small side for the sizing...
But the pattern is so lovely, I will make more and increase the pixienhood size next time

Wonderful Pea Coat

I loved the Pea Coat Pattern. Hated putting all the pieces together but cutting out and sewing was brilliant. Great instructions and just a great quick and easy project that looks awesome finished.

Intended Fit

This boxy style coat is designed to *hopefully* give you two years of wear.  With its long-line body and turned-back sleeve cuffs, it can often be worn the following year with the sleeves rolled down with a shorter, regular body length. The coat is designed to be roomy enough to be worn over layers.

Check the child’s measurements against the measurements in the size chart to get the best fit.  The sizes are generous and may NOT necessarily be the typical ready-to-wear sizing you might expect.

Suggested Fabrics

Exterior: I like to use wool - in particular wool blankets, but you could also use heavier weight cottons, corduroy, denim, flannel, coating fabrics, wool melton or similar fabrics. Fleece and soft-shell are also suitable. You could use quilting cottons for a spring weight coat.
Lining: I like to use cotton, linen or other breathable fabric, but you can use regular lining fabric if you wish.

Fabric Requirements

You will need the amounts listed in the chart below for both lining fabric and exterior fabric. You may need more if matching plaids/checks or if you have a directional fabric.
