Pauline and Alice Mini Collection - Gift sewing

I have a granddaughter due in about a month and wanted to wrap something up for her parents to open at Christmas.

Thanks to Karen (intostitches) I discovered this pattern and knew I had to have it.  The pattern is Pauline Alice Mini Collection which includes the overalls, top and jacket.  I made the 3 month size. It all looks a bit on the big side for 3 months but will be perfect whenever she is able to wear it.  

The fabric for the overalls  and jacket lining came from Joann's, the top from Hobby Lobby and the coat from

I added a stripe denim to the overalls for some details and pink topstitching.  This denim is so perfect, a tencel blend, so soft for a baby.   I am in love with all the details in this pattern collection it all comes together for such a beautiful set of garments

For the top, I eliminated the front opening.  Just thought a bit neater for a baby and the back has a closure, which I used snaps.  I added some of the tencel for piping and at the side pocket details on the top. This photo shows those details.

Now for the showstopper of this collection.... the jacket.  Oh my, isn't it so stinking cute?

My only change from the pattern was to only put the snaps on the flap and they are truly decorative.  The layers are pretty thick with all the interesting details of the pocket.  My little granddaughter at 3 months or so is not going to have things in her pocket.  I just wanted the snaps on to add interest to the pocket flaps.

Look at those pockets!

The back vent detail and the hood!

I didn't have enough plaid to match the lining but that is okay still is cute, right?

I did not tell my daughter, the mom-to-be about this at all.  She did see in my stories when I shared the piping technique and right away she texted me, what are you making?  I said can't tell, Christmas is coming.  She didn't like that answer  as she really wanted to know what it was!   LOL

I am in love with all three pieces and can't wait to see her in them

My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
