I really like how easily this jacket sewed up, and how well it fits ds. I didn't add the tab at the collar because I didn't like how it looked with polar fleece, but I think it would look cute with a thinner fabric. I want to make the next one with different colors for the different sections. After having my ds wear the jacket, the only thing I would change would be to add some elastic to the sleeve hems. The sleeves are a tad long, and I think a little elastic would keep them from covering his hands better.

I made this for my nephew with some yummy super soft velour I bought in the SB. It makes me want to have another baby just so I could wrap him up in this stuff!

I also left off the tab because I didn't want to fiddle with it.

I made another one, and this time I added a knit binding to the sleeves (I also used it for the bottom hem). They cover my ds's hands much better this way. The inner collar is a jersey knit to cut down of the bulk. The side front panel has nylon outer wear fabric over the fleece for a color blocked look.
