Thanks a lot Cat , the fabric is a kind of thick wool ( you can see it better here : http://crazeegirl-wears-vintage-dress.blogspot.fr/2013/09/yard-sales-7-et-8-septembre-2013.html ) .

Oh my! I made this jumper in 1967 as part of my back-to-school wardrobe for my senior year in high school. Mine was a green/navy/red wool that I wore with a white blouse. Nice to see the pattern again! Unfortunately, my mother tossed away all the patterns I used in my teens without asking me.
