InstructionsYou could use almost any jumper pattern for this. I lined this to give it more body, then binded it together at the hem with some striped fabric cut on the bias and added my favorite pleated pockets.

What was your inspiration?
I like to make Holiday dresses for my 2 g-daughters.
What are you most proud of?
They are big Red Sox fans as well as loving the Grinch Christmas movie. I have the Grinch's touch turning the Sox in the ornament green, like himself!
I also like the way the Candy Cane font turned out. The striped cotton fabric that I used has glittery threads woven in. It really sparkles. They got a lot of compliments on them.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Any kind of a theme makes something special. If you line a jumper, you are also making it reversable for more wear. Lining is easier than making the facings you'd have to make otherwise.
