It took me long enough, but I finally finished the last of three coats-and-caps for the three new babies in our reenacting unit. I'm especially blessed that the other two babies belong to two of my darling-est friends, because now I get to pretend I'm "Auntie Amy". :)
This last coat/cap combo is for Andrew. He's just turned 8 months. I fear it might have turned out a little too simple compared to the other two -- but I was trying out a different trim option. Nevertheless, I like how it turned out! I used a tan silk taffeta for the lining on this one and I think it'll suit little Andrew wonderfully. Plus it'll be super cozy!
I used my wool plaid bias as a trim. It just looked so good with the brown wool flannel -- hopefully Kerri will forgive me for looking "matchy-matchy" with her son! Haha! :)
That's all for tonight. We leave for the reenactment first thing Friday morning, so I will be spending tomorrow attaching my skirt to my bodice, adding hooks and eyes to close it, making a list, packing, and all that jazz. Have a lovely evening, my friends. May the Lord bless you and keep you.
