I will be the first to stand up and say that I am so addicted to anything that Art Gallery Fabrics releases. For this look, I paired the Emmy Grace with Indelible. The coat lining and gold on the dress bodice are Emmy Grace, the main print on the dress and the teal on the bodice are from Indelible. The colors work so well together!
Yep, that's my daughter, twirling in the middle of the street. Even though she is growing up, she can't resist twirling in a new outfit! And this coat doesn't fail to impress on the twirl factor! Instead of buttons on mine, I used a couple frog closures. They really add a nice touch to the coat.
I really like some of the options available with this coat pattern, such as making it reversible! I might try that style next. We do live in Texas and this wool coat is going to be too heavy for most of our mild winter. But a reversible one in lighter fabrics will be perfect!
For the back of my bodice, I continued the teal fabric across instead of using the gold from the front. I like how it came out, almost like a mock bolero.
I had a lot of fun putting this look together for Layna. And now it's time to start the next project! This time, my son will be getting something pretty awesome.
