*Green corduroy jumper*

The jumper pictured above is what I made for my grand daughter Macey's Christmas. The jumper and turtleneck are Simplicity #5317. The jumper is green cotton corduroy, fully lined in green cotton broadcloth. The turtleneck is cotton interlock. The leggings are Simplicity #1724, and are also cotton interlock with French seams. At first, I looked for striped knee socks, only to find out that stores rarely have knee socks any more. Wow, it really has been a while since I have shopped for children's clothing, lol! The headband and flower are my own pattern. Notice the little snowman applique on the lower left of the jumper; that is from a free ornie pattern from: Tolen Treasures. I also made the pink and white polka dot padded hanger for my darling Macey. This took me forever, lol! Arthritis does slow a person down. It was also not easy to find any green corduroy or the black and white striped cotton interlock fabric. Ebay and Hancock Fabrics saved the day, though. Do you all think Macey will like these gifts? Follow the link below my signature to see the leggings and headband, and the pattern difficulty rating.

Simplicity 5317 is kinda complicated, with the applique, full lining, and back zipper fastener. Simplicity 1724 requires sewing with knit fabrics, so both patterns will be rated:
