As she stands up she can raise her arms to flip the coat up over her head and down into place. Ta-da!! I'm sure it sounds more complicated/time consuming than it is. It's really easy and most kids get a kick out of it and it will save you a little time not having to fumble around for that other sleeve.
You explained way better than I did. That's how I was taught to put on a heavy coats as a toddler.

Labels? I don't use labels. I can't even get my label maker to work.
