Home for the Holidays with Braemar

As my knitting quickly switches gears to the holidays ahead,
I have begun with working holiday coats using one of the patternsBraemar featured in the Kalendar Kidz Publication for what will become a year long endeavor to showcase each month's featured design modeled on my slim Gotz Happy Kidz and Hannah girls, beginning with December's theme:
                    'Home for the Holidays' 
Home for the Holidays as depicted in volume two of  Kalendar Kidz Vol. 2  with minor changes like working a textured white trim, adding a hood and pairing with a dress for a finishing touch

as featured in the book
on my slim Kidz 'n' Cats girls
