Superb! Truly a work of art! Lovely to see a return to the "art" of sewing (hand stitched lining) rather than the quick, quicker, quickest methods that have become the norm in our busy lives! Thank you, Mary Anne.

Ok, this one take the cake. Seriously. I just LOVE the details on this coat, and your work truly is couture! Handsewn lining........ *shudder*

Oh, ConnieAnne, I cannot believe I missed this review the first time 'round and am so grateful you entered it into the Sewing for Kids Contest, so I can wallow in its details. Your work is exquisite and the couture details (hand sewn lining, wow!) are awe inspiring. So lovely, Lily

This reminds me of the adorable coats DD used to wear like this. There is simply nothing cuter than a little girl all dressed up for the holidays wearing a coat like this! Job so well done.

I love the classic vintage style & the fabric colour for the coat and hat. Stunning high quality garments that are very well made.

Totally adorable coat in a smashing colour! Certainly a lot of work for a toddler's coat so it can only be a labour of love. :)

Delightfully classic. Your workmanship is just beautiful.

Connie I was waiting for this review since you posted a teaser about it on the children's contest thread, and Wow, it is worth waiting for. The coat and the hat are equally beautiful. There is one lucky little girl somewhere! Thanks for all the details

It is just beautiful. The vintage patterns for children can be just so cute, and your other dresses are just so artfully made too. (just a comment: the link to the vogue pattern links to the wrong pattern, I do not know if this can be corrected)
