music box jumper

i started sewing this jumper during the kids clothes week challenge, but just finished it today.  it's the music box jumper from Oliver + S.  for those of you who check in here frequently you'll notice that this is something different from what i've been doing lately.  usually i grab something from my fabric stash (or my closet), my vintage stash (like vintage buttons), & if i follow a sewing pattern i might make things up as i go along.  well, not this time.  this time i bought brand new fabric, brand new buttons, & a brand new pattern that i followed pretty closely.  and this time i sewed button holes... i seriously cannot think of the last time i sewed button holes (maybe when i was a teenager??)  anyway, this jumper is view B, i really like the center box pleat & the buttoned down pocket flap details... this one was made in size 3T.  it got done just in time for C when she starts her first day of Sunday school on Sunday :)
