Until then, here's a sewing success. Finally. I was starting to wonder if it was possible anymore. My sewing mojo has returned. Hallelujah.
This jacket is from Anna Maria Horner's book Handmade Beginnings. It's the fourth pattern I've used from this book, and I have been thrilled with each and every one. The thing I love about Anna Maria Horner is the way her clothes are constructed. They go together so easily, and she explains the steps so well. The "Baby in the Hood" jacket is no exception.
It's lined with flannel, and I opted to add another layer of fleece for a little extra warmth. It's the 12/18 month size, which turned out a little smaller than I'd like. It fits perfectly now, but it won't for long.
I'll definitely be making another one.
All the fabric came from Joann's. It's your basic cotton and flannel. It's soft and warm. And pretty darn cute on the baby.
Much cuter than the off-the-shoulder bishop.
