Pink and Orange Girl's Coat

I'm starting this project on Monday, Simplicity's discontinued Daisy Kingdom coat pattern #4515. It will be a Christmas gift for my 7 yo niece, Winter. I have had the fabric, pattern and notions for this coat for sometime. I decided to enter it in Pattern Review's Sewing for Children contest. It should be fairly quick as it's made from double-sided fleece in pink and orange. The coat is sewn wrong sides together with exposed seam allowances. So no need for lining or finishing. I'm slightly short of fabric, so I might have to get tricky with the layout. I think this will be a fun project. I'm really looking forward to it. I don't think I'll have remnants, but if I do, I'll make a little muff to go with.
