Hey y’all! This week we’re taking a break from Styled By Ellie to bring you a style post for Pattern Anthology for their Winter Wonderland Tour! I chose the Juliet Capelet as my sewing project. When I brought the fabric home Ellie’s words were, and I quote, “where is the cool fabric?” Apparently she didn’t like my vision for this design. The next day I brought her to the fabric store to let her choose her own fabric.
At first she was luke warm about the final product, but she warmed up to it pretty quickly!
So, as you may know Ellie is not a girly girl. The reason I chose to do the capelet is that I wanted a challenge. Ellie chose this lovely chambray and the Where The Wild Things Are fabric, which goes perfectly with her laid back casual style. I added the sherpa fabric and buttons for texture.
The result is a capelet that even a tomboy would love!
Let’s talk about the rest of the outfit. I found the buffalo check shirt at my local children’s consignment store. It is size 18 months and was in the boy’s section. One thing I want to stress is if you have a girl, even a girly girl, shop the boy’s section! How cute would this shirt be with some hot pink skinnies and a rockin’ hat?
The leggings are Old Navy a million years ago (hand-me-downs are my fave!) The boots are also from the boy’s section of the children’s consignment store and let me tell you she LOVES them.
Truthfully I would wear this outfit. I think it’s hip and cool and I love the colors! (Although, I might need something more substantial for the pants, leggings do not equal pants if you’re over 12.)
I am eager to see her wear the capelet with the Norah Dress, I think the two together would be a match made in little girl heaven!
