This little coat, inspired by The Princess & the Pea story, is romantic, brightly colored, and wonderfully girly without being overwrought. The stripes represent the mattresses the princess slept on. Little bobble peas (many more than the princess had to contend with) decorate the coat. Slightly felted, the coat is soft and warm enough to use in the Fall or Winter months. Difficulty level is intermediate.
