Dancing Princesses Coat (Girls)

Difficulty: Intermediate

These little coats & leg warmers (in straight and flared styles) are fashioned after the romantic little coats that the 12 Dancing Princesses most certainly would have slipped on over the silks chiffon dresses and brocades they wore each night to dance with the 12 Princes. . . if the underground passages they trod held a chill.

    Ella Coat for Girls


    Delivery Method:

    This little coat, inspired by the Princess and the Pea story, is one I imagine little girls will love to wear: romantic, brightly colored, wonderfully girly without being overwrought. The stripes represent the mattresses the princess slept on. Little bobble peas (many more than the princess had to contend with) decorate the coat. Below you will find instructions for both ruffled and plain edged coats. Slightly felted, the coat is soft and warm enough to use in the Fall or Winter months.

    Pants and Ts for Girls


    Delivery Method:

    My little boy loves clothes that bend and move when he does. He eschews blue jeans because they restrict his movements. The garments in this pattern were designed with him (and all children who like soft clothes) in mind. The little girl on the cover loved wearing the outfit. She ran around, pretending she was a fantastic zebra, jumping and climbing, She didn't want to take these pants and Ts off. . . I think that qualifies as the child's seal of approval. I hope the little girls in your life love these pants

    Hoodies for Girls and Women


    Delivery Method:

    There are few sweaters as cozy and wonderful on a brisk fall day as a hoodie you knit yourself in your favorite yarn. Wear another sweater under it, or just a t-shirt, keep your hands warm without carrying gloves, put up the hood if your ears get cold. The hoodie is quite possibly the perfect comfortable sweater.

    NOTE: The Noni Forget-Me-Not and other Noni flower patterns are sold separately.

  • Plum Ella Coat with Lime ruffles, side view

    Ella Coat Rediscovered for Women Pattern


    Delivery Method:

    This first of the Ella coats came into being after I made a felted coat for little girls. The striped pattern in the little girl's coat was inspired by the piled up mattresses in the Princess and the Pea story. I even sandwiched 3-dimensional green peas between the stripes. Because a felted garment must be made so much larger than the size it will become, I was able to wear the coat before it was felted. I was smitten with the fit of the unfelted coat and the first Ella Coat was born.
