I wanted to throw something together quickly, but not pull out my sewing machine. I found this jacket at Walmart. It is fleece, so no fraying, no need to hem. I wear a size S, and I bought an XL to accommodate for the baby on my back.
The coat I chose has a yoke on the back. It was super convenient because it is the EXACT place where a baby’s head would pop out. For any jacket that does not have a yoke, measure down 5 inches.
I measured 3.5 - 4 inches in from the side seam on each side. And cut along the seam.
