I love winter. The cozy time of year where you layer on rich warm texture full fabrics. While we have not yet entered full on winter mode (how magical would snow be in these pictures??) We are having the most glorious fall with that clean crisp air, bright orange and gold colors all around, it’s heavenly. The best part of sewing a collection for your kids is making pieces that go great together and can stand alone.
Jude is wearing all of the Winter Collection Pieces (except the hats he has a super large head 🙂 The style of the pieces are right up his alley, the Blazer is tailored enough to look dressy but can be worn casually and laid back which is how Jude prefers things. The hooded option on the Johnny B Good helps to add to the layered laid back look.
The Tree Climber Trousers are seriously his favorite pants ever… it could be the fact that I quilted the knee patches so not only are they soft and plush but durable, and the inside is lined with a super hero print that he loves. Every boy loves a little super hero print right? I also went for a more traditional jean look and made the patch pockets a regular pant pocket instead. The whole outfit is completely pulled together with the Minnetonka Moccasin boots. You know how shoes totally make or break an outfit?
Well these boots totally make the outfit. My kids adore Minnetonka Moccasins, Abbey has been a fan for awhile but this is Jude’s first pair and he is sold. They are comfortable, easy to wear and durable, which is everything I hope for in a kids shoe. They have rubber soles on the bottom which helps grip and keep kids on their feet. 🙂
For Abbey we went pink. Because if you let this girl pick something out it will be pink (or purple) She already has pink moc boots (which she LOVES) so we went with moccasin style. They went perfectly with the pink and black plaid Holly Trousers. I love the slim tapered leg with the cuffs at the ankle on the Holly Trousers. They worked perfectly with the shoes.
Abbey has picky taste and funny feet. She can’t be the only one who has trouble keeping shoes on but I tell ya we have a pile of adorable shoes that don’t stay on her feet when she walks, it’s really frustrating. So when these shoes stayed on her feet as she ran about hiked around and played like a kid plays we were both thrilled. The comfort level is right up her alley. If the girl could live in pajamas she would. We skipped the zipper in the Holly Trousers and they are so comfortable she feels like she is wearing pajamas but the fit and style of the pants make them socially acceptable to wear in public 😉
The Sweet Bonnie Top is a comfy raglan with an eased fit and the sweet peter pan collar is just about my favorite thing. Abbey also got a Arctic Trapper hat, it’s perfect and cozy and will keep her plenty warm all winter long. I added ties at the ear flaps so the hat could be secured in place with a cute little bow.
And if we are doing kid style then I can’t possibly leave out the littlest kid. Penny is actually too small for any of the patterns but they were easy enough to shrink down to her size. The Juliet Capelet is perfection for a baby, it’s so easy to put on no wrangling with arms in arm holes, just wrap around and button and it’s like she is wearing a nice warm blanket.
Plus that hood? Come one there is nothing cuter then a baby in a hood and I love the added trim option. I also made her a little baby size pair of the Holly Trousers and they are so perfect for the slimmer leg and the diapered bum baby.
