Spirit Jacket for Wellie Wishers!

If you've been around for a (LONG) time you might remember the Spirit Jacket I tested for Cole's Corner a few years ago.  I made Zeke a really cute jacket that he never wore (also, click that link up there to see the jacket.  How little does Zeke look?!?!) and I didn't think about it again for a couple years.  

Now I'm on the prowl for all things Wellie Wisher sized since Kessa got one for her birthday so I was thrilled when Nicole said she was going to make the Spirit Jacket in that size.  

How cute does Camille look in her jacket?!?!  It's a raglan style and can be made with sooo many different fabrics!  (I actually misplaced that bottom snap.  That was my bad, not the pattern.)  

This jacket is also the perfect canvas for adding fun embellishments to!  I just slapped initials on Kessa and Camille's with some Under Wonder and then did a quick stitch around them.  

The doll pattern is on sale through Sunday for just $3!  

and if you don't already have the kid's pattern (it's great for girls AND boys!!) be sure and grab it too.  

The kids pattern even has pockets and it's a super easy, beginner friendly pattern!  

see?  Adorable!!!

and if you don't have any bottoms check out these leggings!  Lots of lengths and a SUPER fast sew.

Dublin Dolman

Terra from New Horizons has done it again!!!  This time it's a Girls Dublin Dolman that has sooo many options you'll have a different one for every day of the week and then some!  Plus...we talked her into making a matching 18" doll one that includes ALL the same options!  

This first one is the banded shirt length with short sleeves.  There are also options for a tall gathered band and bands for the sleeves, long sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, tunics, high low, gathered waist (shirt and tunic lengths) and it comes in sizes 6-12 months all the way through size 16!  

Marie Grace is sporting a simple tunic length version.

 (the sleeves were lengthened in the pattern after I made this one) 
 Grace was feeling a little crazy when we took pictures....

This version I think will be a huge part of Grace's fall/winter wardrobe.  (She prefers "dresses" to shirts and pants.)

This is the gathered waist tunic length version with a slight high low hem.  It's so cute and easy to make and because the bodice is so small you can use scraps or fabric you spend big bucks on and want to use sparingly for it!  

So, there you have a picture overload of my crazy kid and mini me!!  Go buy the Girls Dublin Dolman from New Horizons!!!
