More Photos of Coat

The sleeves fit perfectly at this shorter length and she loves it. Can you tell?




Off to do some me sewing. I'm thinking grey pants and knit top combo. I actually bought a pattern the other day too. I haven't done that since I started on with BWOF. I have loved this pattern since it first came out last Spring. My local Boutique had it so I figured I would get it. I'm thinking this dress with a cropped jacket would be warm and cute for this winter. What do you guys think? I love the belt and the neck folds. I'll have to see how the hip gathering works for hippy me. I'm thinking about a wool knit from Gorgeous Fabrics. It may even work as a jumper type of dress, I hadn't thought about that until just now. Hmmmmm . . . .

Good job Dawn! She is so adorable in her new coat, jeans and are those little boots on the wrong feet? My Sara used to come out all the time with her boots transposed! Mary

I think that pattern would look great on you. Yes to wool jersey. Just got back from the J.Crew store where they had several dresses like this in black and gray wool jerseys.

And your daughter looks adorable in her new coat.

That little doll is SOOO cute!! I love the coat, especially all the topstitching (even though I know it was a pita!)

And what "hips" are those, you silly girl?? :P
