An ‘Anna Cape’ for Isabelle

DSC_0014DSC_0015DSC_0020DSC_0021

Today I’m taking a break from my regular Kid’s Clothing Week makings to share a gorgeous pattern that I tested recently!

When Lisa from Big Little put out the testing call for the "Anna Cape" I was pretty excited. My kids are big fans of Frozen and I personally like the character ‘Princess Anna’ best of all. (Perhaps because young Anna reminds me of my little Isabelle!)

The sewing came together really quick. Once again Lisa has created a pattern that is simple to sew yet beautiful. You don’t need to use a serger/ overlocker to make this pattern and the instructions and pictures are very helpful.

In celebration of the pattern launch (and in perfect timing for Halloween if you like to dress up) you can buy this pattern here and until 31 October 2014 if you enter the code: ANNAJ15 at the checkout you will receive 15% off! Yay! (And it goes from size Newborn – 10 years, so you can sew all the Anna Capes!)

And now for the little details (plus a sweet wee moment between sisters) …

It might be hard to tell from the photos, but the pom pom trim is actually a deep shade of purple (not black). As for the fabric, both the outer and the lining are repurposed from my local op shop. I’m pretty sure that the pink wool on the outside may have once been a dog blanket! (eewww – don’t worry, it’s since received many washes in my machine and now smells like eucalyptus!) The trim around the collar was something I just happened to have in my stash (and I think the lacy scallops work perfectly), and I couldn’t find a ‘frog clasp’ but I think this ‘toggle’ thingy (from Spotlight) works perfectly!

Anyway, my little Anna (aka Isabelle) loves it! (And is now asking for an Anna dress too!

Happy sewing – and don’t forget to get yourself a copy of this lovely pattern – using the discount and code mentioned above, while the offer lasts!

Thanks again Lisa for designing another awesome pattern!

Do you wanna build a snowman?
