The Penny Vintage Coat and Dress

I have been quite here on the blog lately, that means I have been working on a ton of surprises! So Here is the new pattern from Elli Inspired that I was able to help test this month, it the Penny Vintage Coat and dress pattern. It is for sale right now in the Bundle Up Sale on pattern Revolution.

I adore this coat! It is perfect for Sweet pea to wear over her dresses (just the right length on the skirt of the coat). This one will be worn over her Easter dress this year. I used a pastel blue stretch twill for the outer coat and matching flannel backed satin for the lining of the coat. I used purple piping that matched the knit dress to line the collar and the right side of the coat. The button are even the same lavender from the knit dress too. I sewn the tie of the coat to slightly stretch the twill so it makes it swirl into a lovely curl when tied.

The knit dress is very lovely too, it has a drop waist with a ruffle neckline and the neck line and sleeves are finished with a knit bias (love this!!) I will be for sure making a few of these dresses for her for summer time too. She even has some knit fabric already picked out. 

The coat can even be interlined for the colder weather but we just lined ours for spring. Lucky for us the winter really has not been here this year so it works out great.

Recognize the hat and mittens?? My hat I crochet last year and missy's mittens form LTTS book. Both have gotten so much use out of them.

If you would like the pattern it is on sale right now in the girls Bundle up patterns.

Happy Sewing!!
