On the Fourth Day of Rachel's 12 Days of Christmas, we're featuring the "Bell Ringer" Coat. Scroll down for a more detailed description and more pictures!
Way back in the 1995 Christmas season Rachel was making samples for each length of her Boxy Coat pattern. The Boxy coat can be made in 3 lengths, this Christmas coat is the shortest one.
It’s called "Bell Ringer" because it has lots of small actual working Christmas bells sewn onto it, as well as having bell themed fabric. Secretly it’s also Rachel’s dig at her brother CJ who once exclaimed with brotherly exasperation, “Do all your clothes make noise??”
