Description

For the Pink & Red project Challenge. My strong suit isn’t usually making clothing, so I ended up using two patterns for Honour’s outfit. The coat is made from cotton/polyester twill and is lined with 100% cotton, which some of the proceeds coincidentally are for breast cancer. I used magnetic snaps instead of button holes on the coat so they won’t come loose as easy and it’s super easy for kids to figure out!
The dress is super simple: 100% cotton and elastic along the neck and sleeves.

I need to thank Honour, my super-cute niece, for being so good for our photo shoots (about 150 photos!!)!! And for Skyla, who actually smiled for the camera!! And Coro for taking the over 150 photos and being so patient about it. :)

Coat Pattern is from Heidi&Finn and the Dress Pattern is from Leila & Ben.
