First off, we'd like a big THANK YOU and lots of hugs to go to our beautiful models – Natalie, Becca, Rachael, and Bethany – and to their wonderful sisters for their willingness to take so many fun pictures for us. We love you girls! (Visit our friends the Coghlans at their blog, Life in a Shoe.)
Now, we promised details, didn't we? About all of the AnaClaire options? Well, here you go!
~girls sizes 2-14 are included in one pattern envelope, along with full-size pattern pieces (printed on sturdy paper) and fully illustrated instructions.
~$14 (and we'll ship it for free if you pre-order now!)
~jumper comes in two lengths – below knee length or ankle length (all of the options are included for either length)
~back ties (if you like)
~pockets in 3 sizes
~your choice of hem style: with a band, a ruffle, or plain
~button-and-loop back closure,
~or ribbon tie back closure
~slightly squared scoop-neck bodice with empire waist
~simple A-line skirt
~no buttonholes, no zippers (which basically means the whole jumper can be constructed during one naptime)

Isn't it exciting to have so many different looks in one simple pattern?
