the wanderings coat
A wanderings coat for all adventuresome girls--girls who like to wander in the woods, looking for enchanted creatures and earthy cottages. The woods are full of mystery, conducive to girlhood wonder, so in the woods they like to wander. But when woodsy wanderings find no place in our busy schedules, the next best thing is a wanderings coat, perfect for childhood wandering, yet much safer and much more convenient. This can be a true mind-wandering machine to help your girl's mind to wander whenever you need her to the most: in long post office lines, in Doctor Reiss' waiting room, or during the too-long subway ride. Your girl simply opens up the coat, pulls open the little fabric house, and enters her own little make-believe world. Which chair fits in which bear pocket? And who gets the big bowl of soup? Too hot, too salty, or just right? Is that Goldilocks hiding behind the bear's door? Suddenly your girl is transfixed, transported into a peaceful reverie...
So for all those moms seeking a little tranquil wandering, this coat might be perfect. (It's also super warm and super soft, with earth friendly heavy linen on the outside, and a lucky vintage find on the inside.) Patterns will be ready within a month, unless my mind wanders off and gets lost inside the wanderings coat!
