Remember this fabric? Vintage 70's fabulous rust-and-floral corduroy, scored at the thrift store. I had a vision of a cute little cord jumper for Doodle, and fought with different design ideas for a while. Then I found this pattern for free. It was exactly what I had in mind, and wound up being really easy to make. Victory! Here's the finished cuteness:

Doodle helped me design the pockets, and officially approved of the ribbon/lace edging and the yellow flower buttons on the shoulders. She's already been bouncing around the house in it, sticking chapstick, a necklace, and other goodies in her pockets. Perfect for a rambunctious little girl on the go. Yay!

Added bonus - it was cheap to make. Here's the grand total for supplies.
Pattern: free online
Fabric: $1 @ thrift store (and enough left over for a skirt for me!)
Lace: 35 cents @ thrift store
Facing (fabric inside): $1 @ thrift store
Buttons: $1.50 (half off) @ fabric store
Ribbon: from my stash
Thread: from my stash

A thrifting, sewing success!
