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