Ahnalin has been begging for some
new corduroy jumpers for Fall.
She had been stash diving in my
corduroys and found this purple stripe
and she wanted it!
You see, back in September,
when we had to admit that
sandals, Crocks and flipflops,
were not going to get her through the school year,
she fell in love with these purple boots!
This was followed by much begging,
and many promises of being a precious,
perfect, angelic child every minute of the day.
Well, I bought the boots for her.
She wanted a corduroy jumper
with pockets ( for collecting rocks
and stubby pencils)
and she wanted lace on it.
On one of our many trips
to Joann Fabrics,
she begged for this pattern.
And because it was on sale for 99 cents,
she got it!
I bought the corduroy a long time ago
from Walmart and I bought the lace
recently from Fabric Hound.
The buttons are from my vintage
She wanted to hold her McGuffey Readers
while I took pictures because
they match the fabric.
This is one of her
"Duh Mom!" looks
and she was very ready for me to
finish taking pics so we could walk to school.
She HATES even the thought of being late.
And, of course,
we must have the Classic Ahnalin pose
to finish it off.
So, a bit about the pattern.....
It runs quite large.
I wish I had purchased the smaller
size range because I probably
should have made a 4
and lengthened it to the size 7.
But the pattern packet included 6,7 &8
so I cut the 6 in a 7 length.
The pattern goes together quickly
and is easy to wear for my girl.
She is already planning the next jumper out
of this pattern.
So, I say it was a success.
