Today was our cool-weather day for the week (82 degrees today, compared to upper 90's the rest of the week!), so it seemed like an appropriate day to try out a Fall outfit. Last winter I bought some corduroy on clearance at Joann's with the intention of making a cute jumper for my daughter-- which, of course, I never did. But now with the Retro Reproduction pattern available I have no more excuses-- it's easy, quick, versatile, and you can do so much with it (come on, that was a great sales pitch! Are you sold on it yet? And did we mention that the pattern is free?!)
Anyway, the Retro Reproduction dress makes a GREAT corduroy jumper to wear with a long-sleeve t-shirt and leggings. Perfect for those cooler months. For this version I decided to add bubble pockets (I'm not sure if that's really a thing, but it seems like it should be) with an exposed lining and piping.
And despite the summer weather, we did test it out with the long-sleeve t-shirt and leggings.
So what do you think? Is there enough interest to have these pockets as an add-on to the pattern? Are there other variations you'd like to see? We'd love to hear your feedback!
