Pippi Longstocking Jumper

Pippi-LongstockingMy adorable granddaughter is in love with the character Pippi Longstocking and wanted to dress up like her for Halloween this year.  Grammy to the rescue!

I took a regular jumper pattern in a size 4, sewed it as directed, then added the necessary patches (in batik prints) to make it look like Pippi’s.  Yesterday I gave it to Samantha and it fit like a charm.  She will add the required pigtails and mismatched socks to complete the look.  You can’t see it, but there are more patches on the back and sides.


A happy little girl, looking forward to Halloween!
