Okay, here's more pictures of the adorable coat Auntie Em sent for Jude's birthday. She totally surprised me, and my goodness, I LOVE IT!
Like I said before, it's the Baby in the Hood coat from Anna Maria Horner's book, Handmade Beginnings. I'm afraid I would purchase this book for this one pattern alone.
Emily used blue and white striped seersucker for the main fabric and a textured white cotton for the contrast. The combo is so classic and perfect.
She says she used the 18-24 mo size and then added 2 inches to the body and sleeves. My Jude is a skinny little thing, so her alterations are absolutely perfect. I think we'll get lucky even and where it two summers in a row!
