I bought a 50 yard bolt of this beautiful cotton Ikat fabric way back in 2000 (when I had my women's label) I envisioned a dramatic "tribal warrior princess" dress/kimono as a finale piece for my show (shown above photographed in Southern California) It used up about 5 yards and I've been holding onto the rest ever since. I never really considered using it for children's wear until I was shopping around Etsy for supplies and came across a listing for these great, fluffy, cotton pom-poms. Then it occurred to me that Devon needed her own "little warrior princess" coat. I used the pattern I drafted for the Bon Voyage Carcoat, eliminating the collar and turning it into a tie front closure using self binding and the finishing touch...pom-poms!



  1. This is so beautiful. Love it! Your blog is wonderful and Devon is beautiful.
