Flannel Jumper

I wanted to make Sophie a warm, cozy outfit for this winter. Usually it is quite cold here and a lot of her dresses seem to be thin. I bought this flannel at Jo-Annes a few months ago. I really loved the polka dot-no surprise-so I used it for the jumper. The bodice is lined with the floral. The pants have elastic around the ankles and are edged with ric rac. The jumper is edged with ric rac as well.

I tried this on her and it is a bit big-but I haven't washed it yet and all she does is grow, so I am not too concerned about it. She wouldn't hold still for a single second, I took a dozen pictures and this was the clearest. The shirt is from Naartje.

I bought a remnant of that polka dot flannel a while back too. I just love it. I, of course, was thinking of making a quilt with it, but what a cute use of it! I love the polka dots and flowers together. It's so you.

I see some little piggies sticking out from the pants. Very cute!
