Order your Wanderings Coat pattern just in time for Valentines, (on sale for only $10!) starting this Friday through Monday. If you're a slow, contemplative (or maybe procrastinating) sort of sewer, you can have all spring and summer to sew your girl's coat for the fall. Or if you're a speedster seamstress, you can have it ready for use for the end of winter and beginning of spring. Here is a link with some tips for sewing the coat with fur along the hood. My girl has worn her coat all winter long, and prefers it even above the pink and silver sparkly (and super ugly) ski coat her dad bought her last winter! What girl wouldn't want a wanderings landscape inside her coat? And a hood with soft buttery rabbit fur?

I'm sorry to hear that real rabbit fur was used. Wouldn't a nice knit angora trim do?

Jamjaree, I think it is the designers personal choice to use real fur if she chooses. I am sure a substitute of fake fur would be fine if the person making up the pattern wanted to. Everyone is entitled to personal preference and opinion and shouldn't try to force it on others.

i can totally understand her choice of this coat over the store bought one. who wouldn't choose it, it's beautiful. my kids always prefer handmade items. i think they see it as us investing time in them and it makes them feel special.

That is a great photo! And great design all the way around!!! I love that buttery yellow color... ever since you posted that painting of the older gentleman with the cat, I fell in love with yellow (and painted a whole room that color!). My daughter would love the furry hood too... some children are so tactile (most really) and it would be a favorite!!

I have to say that after seeing the coat in person, I wish I had a little girl to sew for!

Lovely pattern! Too bad I'm already swamped with sewing to last the rest of the winter and probably most of the summer too :)
