Peek at my Sails

Working on a panel for my little boy. This one has sail boats done using a picture smocking technique. I am liking it!

All finished! Made up in white striped pique and piped in aqua birds eye pique 100% cotton. These fabrics are so nice and the luster and sheen is gorgeous!
I decided to line the jacket with the aqua birds eye so I could make it reversible. That way he can wear it again as a Sunday jacket. I plan to make smocked pants out of the remaining aqua cotton.
The bonnet pattern I created myself. It has a faux folded brim that is piped in aqua and I put piping around the back where I gathered the body of the bonnet to the back.
Here it is modeled by my angel son.
