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.
Renaissance Royalty meets modern day baby. This old-world style jacket is made with re-embroidered lace. This edified artistry brings the intricate flower clusters to life. The dramatic spacing adds an undeniable regal essence. Two ample 100% silk ribbons are securely fastened for presentation ease. And finally, intricate hand-beaded lace trims the edge of the jacket’s entirety.
For a purely subtle elegance, drape this lacey goodness over our soft 100% cotton slip. Or, if you still love subtlety but want something with just a little extra–pair it with our regal cotton slip. The eight-inch ruffle makes a statement without being too loud. Or, last but certainly not least, if you would like a truly royal affect pair this jacket with our exquisite Sophi or Royal Gown.
Next up from our NEW designs is our Amy Blessing Dress.
Blessing Dress Details:
A 100% sheer lattice, polyester dress delicately overlays a soft 100% cotton slip. Flower-vine details float atop the bodice lattice and skirt edge. Perfectly scrunched lace wraps each sleeve in pure sweetness. The white satin-ribbon sash makes getting that perfect fit a breeze. (Ever wondered how to tie a dress sash into a perfect bow? Check out our Facebook page for a tutorial.)
A matching headband pulls this quaint little dress altogether. Soft elastic is attached to more flower-vine goodness, while an off-centered satin bow adds that “little something extra”.
Every mom wants their little one’s day to be memorable. Let us help with our many accessories and embroidery options. Listed below are some must-haves to create a notable and hassle-free day.
Camisole Onsie – not only do these hold baby’s diaper firmly in place during the ceremony, they are great for everyday use (get more and save with our 3-pack). Have her initials monogrammed on the chest for a personal touch.
Cotton Diaper Cover – dainty satin-ribbon bows and cotton ruffles adorn the legs. And what could be more adorable than a cross, shamrock, or baby’s name embroidered on the bum!
Floral Initial Ruffle Bib – keep her dress pristine with a bib that looks as pretty as the dress. The floral embroidery detail compliment the dress and the flourish initial makes it custom just for her.
Silver & Pearl Name Bracelet – divine fresh-water pearls and sterling silver beads encircle baby’s name, spelled in sterling silver letter blocks. Add a cross charm and/or birthstone crystal to sparkle on her tiny wrist. Finally, a half-inch silver chain enables the bracelet to adjust for a lasting fit.
Have any embroidery done in your choice of white, baby pink, soft green, metallic gold, or silver thread. White thread offers a subtle look, pink or green enhances her small features, while metallic gold and silver create a timeless feel.
Transform your special day into a Winter Wonderland with our Collins and Josina circle skirts
Katy Lane Collection has new holiday skirts for women. The full circle cut design creates billows of fabric along with enticing volume and flow. Just imagine these gorgeous skirts in a wedding line of beautiful bridesmaids. Or picture yourself floating across the room during a dinner party, dance, anniversary, gala, or any other special event–all eyes will be one you! Not only do these skirts look the epitome of elegance, they make you feel like the belle of the ball. We have full length skirts (Collins) for the utmost formal events, and knee length skirts (Josina) for a little flirty fun.
Our flower girl designs have all sorts of different applications. Have matching bridesmaids and flower girls. Or shake things up with diamond textured bridesmaids and smooth textured flower girls. Maybe differentiate the two with lengths; full length for bridesmaids, and knee length for flower girls. The possibilities are endless! Also, not only will the girls look adorably sweet in these skirts, they will LOVE the way they twirl!
Did we mention the options?
Women and girls skirts come in full length or knee length, and your choice of burgundy smooth, burgundy diamond, and ivory diamond color and texture. These skirts above and below are pictured with our soft velvet shirts. Monroe for the girls, and Hartley for women.
Dress alike, but use different accessories.
One final thought. How about a mother daughter photo memorial. Every parent knows that children do not stay little forever. Capture their vibrant youth within your heart–and take photos often! These will be priceless in the future. Oscar Wilde once said, “No man is rich enough to buy back his past”, but luckily we can take photos to remember it.
What could be better than a simple, yet elegant baptism gown? How about one that is made with gorgeous pearl-white silk! Our 100% silk dupioni provides an heirloom look with a rich luster & feel! This particular silk is a subtly textured fabric woven from a double strand of silk yarn in a plain weave pattern. The yarn is uneven and varies in width, creating a series of natural horizontal “slubs” that fosters a unique old-world character within the fabric.
To add even more vintage appeal, classic silk puff-sleeves accompany a silk high-waist bodice. Followed by a lavish one-inch pure silk ribbon that is used for the dress sash. This brings luxury and allows adjustment freedom for a snug custom fit.
For the focal point of the bodice we used beaded scalloped-peaked embroidered lace. The pearl-like beadwork in the center of the lace provides subtle detail, along with impeccable presentation. In addition, this elaborate lace is the highlight of the matching bonnet, along with more one-inch pure silk ribbon for chin ties. Also, the skirt is adorned with additional embroidered lace as it is festooned around the edging like delicate icing on a cake. Dainty beads sprinkle the embroidered lace of both the bonnet and the skirt–so quaint! Finally, the skirt becomes complete with a generous silk-ruffle hem.
Baptism Keepsake Quality
The grandeur of this gown stands alone. However, we felt personalized embroidery would add the perfect keepsake touch. To do this we have included a soft cotton slip to go underneath the gown. Here a cross, full name and baptism date, or birth date can be a needlepoint work of art to be cherished. By customizing the slip, the gown is left in an heirloom quality that can be handed down to future posterity.

Bringing to life a piece I have been dreaming up is always a beautiful day for me. This gown is just as I had imagined it and seeing it on a little one is a true delight. To make it even better, the gown is machine washable! Having children myself I know the comfort in sometimes having something you can launder yourself instead of taking into the dry cleaners because there is only so much time in the day! This gown could also work for a flower girl dress with a colorful sash added on and even for delightful family photos. Versatility is a wonderful touch with this gown, and I know you will just love one of our newest Summer Christening dresses!
After all it is Communion season, but at the same time it’s also May Flower season! So I wanted to highlight the two together by showcasing our dresses with a theme of May Flowers: Miss Lauren First Communion Dress. This is such an important time in a young girl’s life and you want her to be showcased beautifully. A dress is a great way to showcase her personality. The Miss Lauren is great for sweet girls that want something with a little flow when she walks and a pouffy skirt.
We love the simple lines we created with this dress and how the skirt is just the right amount of pouf for her to have a beautiful gown. Some events in life require a more understated gown and this one is perfect for those occasions with just a touch of flare, with another bow in the back at the belted waistline.
To order this darling First Communion dress for your little Miss’ big day, or for anything she needs a simple white dress for, go here for the Miss Lauren.
The Miss Lauren is a simple and elegant, 100% polyester taffeta A-line dress that is perfectly dress-up with out being too fussy. Featuring a dainty cap sleeve, scoop neckline and a draped bow at the waist with a flower detail perfect for May Day. With a fabric belt it helps give a feminine waist that is age appropriate. Zipper closure in back, made in the USA.
As moms, we love to be spoiled by our little ones on Mother’s Day. Breakfast in bed with maybe an eggshell or two, cuddles, and a homemade card. But asking for gifts for something we love so very much is not something we do. But what if it was for something sentimental and a keepsake? Perfect for Mother’s Day: Mom and Daughter Pearl Bracelet Sets are a great way to share something sweet and simple with your little girl that will last over time. Then someday, she can pass it down to her little girl. But this gift could also be for a goddaughter, niece, or any little girl that is special in your life. They could even be used for a flower girl! The possibilities are endless for something that is timeless and meaningful.
I remember those simple gifts over the years at memorable events that really made a difference for me. Things that I want my daughters to be able to see/use and know that I love them so much that I want them to enjoy something that I hold so dear to me. Those small glimpses in their memories will last forever and be a wonderful connection we’ll have through the years, even after they’re grown up.
These bracelets are made of freshwater pearls, and a sterling silver closure, and are made right here in the USA. If you have more than one little princess, you have the option to order more to go on everyone’s wrists. If this darling gift is for a Christening or Baptism we offer the ability to attach a cross charm as well. Mom and Daughter Pearl Bracelet Sets are a great start to traditions as well as one to begin even if they are not so little.
