Another Sweet for Valentine's Week

I finished my Buttons and Blossoms Jacket from my chapter's workshop with Gail Doane. I love this little jacket. I have the matching bishop cut out and ready to pleat. The embroidery is just fun and reminds me of Mary Engelbreit illustrations. Maybe that was the designer's goal, I don 't know. I just know I love it. I can't wait to get the dress done to match.

This jacket is made from Dakota pique and trimmed with black microcheck. This picture is not the best, I didn't have my photo taking mojo on that day I guess.

I love the shaped yoke and the back pleat. I have made a size 12 months. It is a little roomy on our baby right now, but will fit nicely into the spring for when mornings might still be a bit chilly.

Parting Shot:

She is getting so big and has a tooth now!! Those big blue eyes melt a lot of hearts around here.


  1. The jacket is so cute, can't wait for the whole ensemble.

    I love the picture of the princess, love her OFB ensemble too. I assume you made that? Love it, too stinkin' cute, as always!


  2. This is one of my favorite children's patterns. Gail's designs are wonderful. Your embroidery is gorgeous.

  3. That jacket is adorable! You have a cutie patootie on your hands!

    I cannot believe she has a tooth! Thanks for the the adorable baby fix of the day!

  5. That baby is just a living doll....and a tooth!!!! Your work always amazes me.

  6. A tooth! She is so talented!

    Gorgeous jacket, Gail's designs are so adorable. They are cute, but not too fussy.

  7. I love the little princess...and the jacket is cute too... what is the pattern again?

  8. both are darling!!! I love that jacket and just love that design and coloration!!1 I hope Millie and lacey can still wear theirs I made last year!!!

  9. I love your jacket. I think next spring my new little one will need one of those for chilly mornings. I can't wait to see your bishop to match.
    I can't believe she is already getting a tooth! She just gets cuter all the time. Love those baby blues!

  10. I would like to make this for my granddaughter. It is sooooo cute. I am having trouble finding the JHB buttons it calls for. Where did you purchase yours?
