Signature Style

I can't believe how fast the weeks have been going by!

Since it's fall and now freezing, I had to make a coat. Ever since the Moiano came out from Straight Grain, I've been dying to make it! It's stated as a "summer" coat, but me, follow directions?? Yeah, I couldn't help but add a layer of batting into it so it would keep Zoe warm and snugly.

How gorgeous is the inside of this coat???

The outside is just as gorgeous. The Flannel is Robert Kaufman Shetland that I bought from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I LOVE this flannel. 

The lining is made from Art Gallery Lavish, Petal Picking that I bought from Phat Quarters. I know it's definitely a more "spring" print, but mustard and navy??? Too, I've been hoarding this fabric for a really long time and this was the perfect project for it. I also can't get over this facing in the coat. The only thing I love better is my logo in it. It just makes me happy seeing it! I also sewed down a content and size label in the side.

In the original pattern, the buttons are only added to the top, but I added interfacing down the entire length of the lining facing and the first 3" all the way down the front so I could have them go down the entire way. 
I really love all the little details of this coat.

For her outfit, I made the Blank Slate Beachy Boatneck from Riley Blake stripes, again bought from Phat Quarters
I LOVE stripes, so of course it had to be added into my Signature Style.

The skirt is my favorite skirt pattern from Linen, Wool, Cotton Kids. There's just something about the silhouette that I just adore.

 Then last, but not least, we had to make a little matching doll. The pattern is in testing for Stitch Art and should be released soon. I was hoping to have enough Lavish left over to make her a skirt, but I used every single scrap on the coat and skirt for Zoe's outfit and didn't have a big enough piece left over.

Isn't she just adorable? Zoe chose the name "Lemon" for her, but isn't 100% yet. I guess since we're given 2-3 days to name a baby, I can give her a couple of days too. LOL

So that's our Signature Style!
