My girl needed some warmer school clothes.
The little red skivvy she wore yesterday is almost a 3/4 sleeve now.
I decided to make a jumper dress for her.
I took an ugly red boys jumper...
...and turned it into something a little bit special.
It reminds me of something Little Red Riding Hood would wear.
I used the Pink Fig Scrapbook Jeans & A Sweatshirt pattern.
I actually added 4 inches extra to the length to create more of a dress than a jumper.
I also joined it much higher up at the front. This is the 3rd jumper I have made with this pattern and I found that when making it the way the pattern suggests the jumper keeps slipping off at the shoulder.
The only request my daughter made in regards to the fabric choice was she wanted lovehearts.
I couldn't find any red and black fabric (school uniform colours) that had lovehearts,
except this fabric. It is sooo cute, perfect for a sewer.
There is little stick men with button heads, holding needles with thread.
I am really pleased with the result of this dress, and so is my girl.
She put it on this morning, even though she doesn't have school today.
At least I know she will be happy wearing it.
