It was HARD! I do not like curved stitching! I had a heck of a time getting the neck part to lay right.

Jumper Look's great... and your daughter is so pretty... It's fun sewing for girls ... I use to make my DD a lot of clothes... I use to like to make her capes to go with her dresses.. anyway Shari you did a great job.

Good job Shari. Now don't be so darned hesitant. Go make another out of denim or cord. I must have made dozens for my girls when they were Alyssa's age.

That is so precious.. The jumper and the Daughter..I have made several jumpers like that for my great-neice and my GD .. Denim makes up beautifully.. GD loved her denim one , she had 3 shirts to wear with it and wanted 2 more.. Told her Mom "then I can wear it all week to school"... Needless to say, she did not get the other 2 shirts..
Tell Alyssa I really love her taste in subjects, and fabric..:bg: :bg:
