It is March, and we are thinking spring around these parts!  Today we are announcing the upcoming release of a free new pattern piece for our existing Kestrel Coat pattern--a new collar piece perfect for milder days ahead.  The Spring Collar pattern piece can replace the pointed collar in our original Kestrel design (seen here). For added fun, we've styled it here with a little 1/2" ruffle.

For the coat shown here, we have used a cotton pique in coral pink (similar to this), and a colorful polka dot polyester lining and vintage buttons from our archives. We've also styled this look without the gathered, two-part sleeve, just for something a little different.  Remember when Kristin showed us how to do that?

But don't worry, we've left that beautiful back untouched:
