a sweet little coat

  i had this great idea to make little tilly a special coat for her first birthday. i am an amateur sewer, but i didn’t think a coat could be that difficult. was i wrong.


good thing for my mom, the expert seamstress, because without her, this would have remained beautiful blue wool all folded up in my fabric bin.


my mom loves little details, and this cute greet velvet ribbon tie back was perfect.

we used a sweet floral for the lining.


it turned out so beautifully {thanks to my dear mother} and i can’t wait for tilly to wear it!
