From the hands of world renowned needle artist, Gail Doane, come 10 gorgeous jackets sized from 6 months through to 12 years, beautifully embellished with superb embroidery and colourful buttons. Designed as the perfect partner for a classic smocked dress, each gorgeous jacket looks equally as stunning over a pair of jeans or skirt.

This exquisite new book, proudly brought to you by Country Bumpkin Publications, provides you with multi-sized patterns for each jacket, plus bonus patterns for a smocked bishop and unique square yoke dress, as well as a stylish wrap skirt. Detailed instructions and step-by-step photographs for all smocking, embroidery and construction make this a 'must have' for every needleworker's library.

Gail was born and raised in Canada but now lives just out of Salt Lake City in Utah. With seven children of her own, and a growing list of grandchildren, sewing for those she loves has always been an important part of her life and she spends countless hours dreaming up new ideas and bringing them to reality. She loves fine fabrics in natural fibres and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of trims and finishes suitable for use on garments for children. The most outstanding aspect of her work is the meticulous finish she applies to every facet of a garment, a feature that has made her much in demand as a teacher. Generous with her gift and always willing to share her knowledge with others, Gail's work has appeared in numerous publications and this is the first book of her designs.
