  1. Jenni Early

    My kids absolutely LOVE this pattern! They have worn the lab coats almost every day since I’ve made them and requested another one for the 3 year old who doesn’t have one yet. The collar is the trickiest part, but there’s a video that makes that fairly easy to sew also 🙂 Rebecca Page patterns are always so well written and user-friendly!

  2. Ashley Richey-Burdick

    This lab coat is everything I have been looking for since my daughter told me she wanted to be a doctor. The options are wonderful, the sizing is perfect (I love that there is plenty of room to grow), and my daughter is in love. This pattern is a little more difficult than a beginner, but not too complicated, and the included tutorial and linked videos will help a ton with any of the more challenging parts. A great pattern.

  3. Kirsten Welch

    This is a fabulous pattern! All those extras are so awesome! I wasn’t expecting those and was so surprised by them! It’s really a great sew and perfect for boys or girls and has the potential for so many different variations.

  4. Melinda Bailey

    As always I cannot fault Rebecca Page patterns. Instructions are clear and concise and the outcome was a great addition to the dress up box. I decided to sew a white coat, which can double as a lab coat or doctors coat and my little man was impressed!

    What a fabulous pattern and a freebie which is brilliant. I learnt so many new skills, my first time doing French Seams and my first ever buttonholes, very exciting for novice sewist like me. A little challenging at times, but I thoroughly enjoyed learning new skills and felt very accomplished when I completed it. I made it into a fireman’s Coat and my grandson was tickled pink dressed up like a fireman, I’m not sure who was more excited with the Coat, him or me 🙂

    This pattern was so much fun! The instructions are super easy to follow and the diagrams make it even easier. With the pockets and additional stripes it is versatile and can be turned into a fireman’s or paramedics jacket as well. Most children’s patterns seem more geared towards little girls and I was so happy to be able to sew something up for my son! Thanks to the RP team for such a great (AND FREE!) pattern!

    I am absolutely grateful for this free pattern, i think of myself as an adventurous beginner in sewing but I found it very difficult to understand steps 3.8 to 3.10, images are not clear and also the explanations not very clear. Maybe a video would be awesome cause because of this gap in the process I have lost the track in sewing the rest.

      We use different methods in different patterns so that our sewisters can try new techniques. You can use another technique, your preferred one, to finish the labcoat or use the technique in the Sophia.
