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.

Love the lace details in the caplet!
Love every single thing you've made here. That little capelet is so adorable!!! Jude totally rocks those Minnetonkas. I dream of such a pair for myself – and Wilma.
These are all cute! I may have to get some Mocs for my boys! Love Jude's style.
They all look great!
I just adore everything. But the capelet on Penny is the cutest thing ever! And these pictures are gorgeous. Wherever you live looks amazing.
LOVE the regular pocket on those jeans – I would make the same alteration cause I love the knee, just wasn't feeling the big outside pockets. Thanks for showing them that way!
Your kids are so stylin!!! Love everything!
Oh shauna, i love love love your style. Always perfect. Did you just do elastic on abbys pants instead of the zipper? I dont know how to do zippers. they scare me. lol email@example.com

Ack! your baby in the capelet is ridiculously cute!! My girls are definitely getting one each…that's 3….I should get sewing!!
Adorable! What fabric is Abbey's top made out of?!! Looks snuggly
great outfits! I love the plaid pants.
Is there any way you can share the fabric you used and/or where you find it?<br />I've always made my girl's dresses and boys' PJs but never something functional like a coat or trouser pants. I want to do it but I get totally and completely tied up when it comes to finding fabric. I've tried fabric.com and Mood but I get overwhelmed so any tips or points in the right direction
Yes! That post is coming, every fabric I used, and how to pick fabrics especially online. 🙂
Love their outfits and that blazer is amazing!<br />~Jamie

[…] with real leather again from mood fabrics, and a faux fur also from mood that was left over from THIS hat. I really love the cozy feel and look of leather and fur. The boots can be worn up or cuffed […]
