Dressing the Part: Sara's Coat from A Little Princess

The above illustration is from the Tasha Tudor-illustrated version of Frances Hodgson Burnett's "A Little Princess."

I've found the perfect coat for a little girl who wants to dress like Sara Crewe: Vikoros' faux woll collar coat. It comes in several different colors, but Sara's was blue.

This blue velvet bonnet is the closest I can come to matching the one in the illustration, but alas, it only comes in baby and toddler sizes.
