This sporty little jacket will make your child a standout in any arena! It features a simple diagonal stripe pattern on
the body contrasted with wider vertical stripes of the sleeves, and a kimono-style front closure with 2 outside buttons and one inside. Easy drop-shoulder construction allows for quick finishing too. And because of the front overlap, you can make it fit a growing baby longer simply by moving the buttons to allow more room.
