Big Red Riding Hood

Maya hasn't been very well this week. Coughing much of the night and up to take ventalin. She is pretty happy with her new jacket though! It is made from a pattern by Make it Perfect called Uptown Girl. We made it from red pin cord (baby cord) that I have been trying to track down for ages. Luckily a friend who works at Spotlight saw it and bought it home for me.

The jacket is reversible and closes with a button. Cute detail on the front and back with little gathers to give it more shape, and a hood on the back. Pellon added too for extra warmth.

Well, we didn't have a wolf for the pic, so Taz the Tassie Devil had to do, and we wouldn't want to call Maya "little" red riding hood!

Maya looks so gorgoeus in her new red coat Rachel. It looks like a really great pattern.

Love Maya's coat Rachel. Simply stunning on her and that smile.....ohhhh....what a heart breaker she is. Hope she is feeling better soon. Nothing worse than a persistant cough.

Darling jacket to match the darling Big girl. I love corduroy and happened upon some terrific prints and solids. I'm always on the lookout.

Wow this is a real nice jacket. (And I love your little girls smile! She has such a funny face) I was just wondering it one button would be enough to close it when she is being cold. It wouldn't here in the Netherlands...
