Since I won't see my sewing machines again until approximately 25 days and 4 hours from now, I thought I'd do a series reveling in some things other people have made. Exactly two (2) of my family members regularly stitch amazing things with precise attention to detail. (Did I inherit that precision? Apparently not.)
First up is this pinafore jumper my mom made for Grace for Christmas. The pattern is from Ottobre 4-2009-11 with quite a bit added to the length.
I love this brown paisley cord. Well, I love any corduroy, of course, but the brown tones are nice and subdued in contrast to the light and fluffy pinks Grace usually chooses.
Pockets with buttoned flaps.
Back zip, which certainly could be omitted.
