The jacket is made from washable 100% wool and is fully lined with a purple silky lining. It has some nice menswear details with a shaped two piece sleeve and small shoulder pads supporting the shoulder area. I completely interfaced the wool with a lightweight fusible interfacing before cutting the pattern pieces and it gave the fabric a beautiful firm hand. The I-cord five petal flowers are a fun addition to coordinate the jacket with the skirt. A knitted hairband should be just the right touch to keep this soon to be seven year old fashionista happy.

Still Making Floofy's
I think I might need a twelve step program to get me to stop making floofy skirts. I love them. This set is a size 7 and is intended for my granddaughter Hailey next fall. I inherited a VERY LARGE box of beautiful novelty yarns from a generous friend who was in the process of moving and these turquoise and purples just jumped out of the box at me.
If you are new to knitting this might just be the project for you. All you need to know is a finished waist and a finished length measurement. The skirts are knit on circular needles and worked from the top down. You pick and choose when to throw in a new color or texture yarn. The skirt is held up by an I-cord run through knit in eyelets on the waistband.
