Oversized lapel was something I have always loved, but the button cuffs, were his idea since super heros usually have cuffs :)
Hand warmer pockets low enough that kids can actually use them. (what is the deal with the high chest level hand warmer pockets?) The Jacket he is wearing was made from a heavy poly wool blend, and lined with flannel (in a dino print just for Jude) So it will be nice and toasty for our mild but chilly winters. Especially with the sweet plaid scarf around his neck which he refused to model in the 90+ degree day... silly boy :)

The next one is the Michelle Jacket. The sweet and full girls jacket. With a hood, and fully lined and roomy enough to layer well over winter wear.
Abbey choose red, because the wool I wanted to use didn't come in pink or purple...(lucky me :) and it makes me think of little red riding hood every time I see it.
And the piping across the chest is the perfect little pop of color. Pleats add that lovely little feminine detail and add to the fullness of the jacket.
The pattern can be found here:
(yes all the way up to a 10/12 which is the same as a woman's XXS)
And this sweet jumper. With curved bodice so you have some style elements to the sweet baby wear.
