Take Me Back with It's Always Autumn

 Are you ready for another walk back to another awesome look?  Today we're going to really enjoy a deep dive into the A Little Jane look by It's Always Autumn for the Spring Break theme in Season 9 Week 2.


Today this look makes us gasp just as much as it did when we first saw it come up on our screen!  This little lady and her outfit are so charming!  Let's break this look down.  There are 3 garments represented here, and each of them is SO good!  Let's start with that jacket...


What an amazing little jacket!  It has just the right proportions on this cute child.  How is is both on trend and classic at the same time?  

Cropped moto jacket pattern: The Moto Jacket pattern in the shop is just perfect for this!  You might want to add some lapels, or leave it just as is.  And adding that elastic across the back hem would be pretty easy too.

Cropped moto jacket fabric: We found the perfect grass green Ventana Twill from Robert Kaufman!  And do you see that cute pop of colorful lining?  This Mammoth Flannel plaid rust fabric, also from Robert Kaufman is just the right weight and warmth to use.


Next up we have some cute cropped jeans and a darling dressy raglan tee.

Jeans pattern: The Star Boy Skinny Jeans pattern is for boys AND girls, and is really worth the time and effort to sew them.  Your child will thank you...profusely!

Jeans fabric: This Indigo Super Stretch Denim fabric is the perfect weight and structure for jeans they're wear (but not wear through) all day long!

Dressy Raglan Tee pattern: The Aurora Raglan pattern is the one you want for sure.  The way to do it is cut out two fronts, one a shirt length from the jersey fabric we recommend, and one at tunic length from the lace.  Then sew them both together onto the sleeves.  

Dressy Raglan Tee sleeve fabric: We can vouch for the softness of this Laguna stretch cotton jersey pink knit fabric.  It's almost too good to waste use on kids!

Dress Raglan Tee shirt front & back fabric: This tri-blend jersey knit fabric in white will have the perfect drape and recovery to be exactly what you need here.

Dressy Raglan Tee lace overlay fabric: Did someone say no hemming required?  We've sourced the perfect lace for that feminine overlay, and the already finished edge means no hemming for you!!!

Here it is all in one place:


Location, Styling, and Photography: We don't know where the photos for A Little Jane were taken, but we want to go there because we're pretty sure it's a dreamy English garden, don't you think?  The styling took to heart the philosophy of just add sausage curls and you're in Jane Austen's world!!  And as usual, Autumn's photography is stunning.  Placing the sun behind the child to get that flare halo (or whatever the technical term is) is absolutely perfection.  

What else did you notice about this look?
