I bought this pattern after seeing it put together on a display at the fabric store. It’s a simple and sweet jumper, nothing too fancy but there’s something really special about it. It has a little bit of a vintage feel to it. I think it has something to do with the length. I love it, I think it’s super sweet and I’m going to make another one tonight… or tomorrow with owls!
For the jumper, I chose a flannel. Why flannel? I saw this fabric lying on the overstock shelf beside a really cute coordinating knit (that I used to do a top later) and that’s how I chose. Before I ever touched the fabric on the bolt. But I figure, you can wear a flannel shirt so why not? It looks comfy anyway. I went out later and bought some tights but I’m thinking knee socks are cute. I just have to find them in the right color, white I guess if nothing cuter turns up.
And there’s the top in the last picture. Also easy to put together in a short amount of time AND part of the same pattern. Awesome. Have I mentioned that I love simple quick projects? I finally got to give my button kit a go too and made some covered buttons for the front. I recommend this pattern as quick with clear and easy to follow instructions. It’s a keeper.
