The Winnie Shrug was inspired by two great British icons: Winnie the Pooh and Queen Elizabeth I. An unexpected blend of childhood memory and staggering fashion: E.H. Shepard illustrations meet Alexandra Byrne costuming. Which is perfect, really, for a well-dressed young girl and her fashion conscious mother.
This little piece is simple to sew and simple to wear. It closes with one oversized button and stands straight up off the shoulders, framing your sweet girl’s face with a bit of drama. Make it out of some of your favorite fabrics--cozy boiled wool, a sweatshirt knit or even shearling. Keep it simple, line it, add a seam in back or make it reversible. Whichever way, she’ll make it her own.
