|I don't know what's up with that face she's making|
It's Jungle January! I actually bought this fabric, I think, two years ago for my then one year old. I was bound and determined to finally complete it for January. This is Simplicity 1724, View D. I did not do the applique. The fabric had a lot going on and wanted the jungle hearts to stand on their own. I do believe I saw a jungle heart at Joann Fabrics that matched, but that was two years ago.
The pattern has two jumpers, C and D. The view I chose, D, has more of a ruffle skirt. Whereas C has a straight skirt. I will definitely go back to this pattern again. It was a quick cut and sew and I think it looks really nice on.

Mistakes: (Because I always talk about them and obsess) I, for some weird reason, cut a size 4 last week. I don't remember what I was thinking because kids' patterns from the Big 4 always seem too big anyway. I was worried it would look like she's drowning in it. I actually think it looks okay and I'm actually glad that she will be able to wear this next year as well. So, I guess it was a mistake, but I'm happy about it. :)
I also had a hard time with the button holes for this jumper. I may have just been out of practice with making them. I spent most of today ripping and re-doing the button holes. As I was working on them I thought maybe next time I will just use large snaps and a button or flower instead.
But, she likes it a lot and that makes it a success.
