Description

This project started with the fabric—a sweet apple print for my sweet daughter. The pattern is a loose-fitting girl’s yoked jumper with front and back pleats and two buttons—I made the 2T, which fits great on my 32" tall, 27 lb. 18-month-old toddler, with plenty of room (thanks to the pleats) for her cuddly tummy and some space to grow—maybe she can eventually even wear it as a tunic. The armholes are finished with single-fold navy bias tape. I had some trouble getting the curvy shape of the yoke just right, so I drew the stitching lines on in chalk for easier and more accurate seaming. Lots more details on my blog should you be inclined.

Material Notes

This adorable apple-print baby corduroy from Joann’s was the only remotely Christmas-appropriate fabric in the stash—and I am sworn to ONLY sew from the stash. I used about a yard of it ($9 worth). It was really thin and soft and easy to work with, though I had to make sure to use a one-way cutting layout. I didn’t worry about crushing the pile while pressing or pattern matching at seams, though I did make sure that the apples were centered on the back and front. The pink buttons are from M&J Trimming.
