My girls love to image and tell me tales layered with descriptive detail up detail. They imagine worlds filled with vivid imagery and beauty and I love hearing them describe these musings. I decided that they needed clothes that would let them play about in such a world. These jackets and vests are machine appliqued quilters cotton fully sewn to soft fleece and lined with flannel. There are no exposed seams, so edges left to fray. The result is a a garment that fuels a child's love of color and play and will last for years. My first fish jacket lasted through 4 winters of almost daily wear and many, many washings.
