The Jessie Junior Top and 3 Patterns to Give Away (giveaway closed)

Three pattern winners: Suburbsmama, Attilio and Avery's Mama. I have emailed you each the details.
The maker of Darncat patterns from New Zealand sent me a copy of her Jessie Junior Top pdf to try.  
This kind of top can be worn nearly year round in our cold climate.  I made a summer weight one of t-shirt jersey.  There's a short sleeve/hoodless option too.

I love the contrast strip on top of the hood.
 
And the sweet cuffs.
The pattern is sized in metric like the popular Hanna Andersson clothes in the U.S.  Luckily the pattern is a generous fit because I sewed up a size 2 (years) for my child who normally wears a four.  Oops. My waistband cuff is longer than the one suggested in the patten to compensate for the extra length I needed.  I totally love it - it reminds me of women's yoga wear.
Darncat also has these adorable underpants patterns.  Wouldn't these be great to make with some upcycled tshirts?  You can visit her shop here for more patterns as well as sizing information.




Darncat is generously offering 3 Jessie Top pdf patterns to 3 winners.  This is for the wee ones - the pattern comes in sizes 48 - 92 cm - approximately 3 months to 2.5 years old.  (Darncat has bigger size ranges in the works).  Simply leave a comment below to be entered.  Giveaway closes June 26, 2011.
