Every once in awhile our amazing seamstresses will come across a fabric that impresses them to create for someone special in their life. One such seamstress, with our Madison Coat pattern in hand, began to cut, gather, and stitch a darling coat for her newest granddaughter. It turned out SO fantastic we just had to add it to our shop for all of you! What fabric did she use you ask?
100% polyester Minky Dot fabric
Minky Dot fabric is not only a supremely soft micro-fiber but the polka dot feature has a “pop-out” 3D effect that is uber cuddly. The Peter Pan style collar, puff sleeves, and large silk covered buttons bring an air of whimsy and innocence. A high waisted bodice complete with subtle gathers will enhance the baby doll beauty in any little girl. In fact, you will want to pinch her cheeks just to make sure she is still real.
We loved this little Minky Coat so much we couldn’t help but make a pair of matching boots! Starting with the same Minky fabric, a large silk covered button was fastened along with a looped elastic. This makes dressing baby’s feet quick and easy! What mom wouldn’t love that! That is not even the best part, the insides are fully lined with synthetic fur that is so snuggly you will wish you could crawl inside.
It’s Spring time and what better way to celebrate than to dress up the little princess in your castle in this lace jacket. It’s perfect if you want to add more to an elaborate gown or something to dress up a more simple gown or even a cotton slip. This light-weight sheer fabric will fancy her up without making her too hot. The embroidered flower embellished lace is 100% polyester. The jacket ties are 2″ wide lush satin ribbons. Finally, the glittering sparkles will make her shine like the precious diamond she is. This is one of three from our brand new spring designs.

Today we are rounding up some of our featured moms for Mom Talk Monday: Christmas Traditions. Every family has traditions they look forward to for the whole month of December. But sometimes adding something new can be fun and inspiring.
Katie Lindsay, and her husband set up a fort in their living room with cameo coverings and Christmas lights. Her four boys sleep in it on Christmas Eve while the wait for Santa.
Our own Bethany has a tradition that many families do. Her children receive pajamas on Christmas Eve each year, but they come from a few special someones. Santa’s elves leave the pajamas on the front door step and ding dong ditch so they are not seen.
Jen Haderlie, the new mom of twin girls, loves to go to Starbucks for a cocoa and driving to see the Christmas lights where she lives. After they get home they read the story of Christ’s birth before going to bed.
We hope you take time to make new traditions, while still enjoying the old ones, with your family this holiday.
