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.
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.
