I have found a charming, easy and feminine jumper/dress pattern that I would like to share with you! (I don't think that it was intended to be a jumper, but I think it lends itself very nicely to that variation.)
This is the jumper that I featured in my latest entry in The Art of Dressing Like a Lady series(see post below). Although it is hard to see in the photographs, this jumper/dress has lovely princess seaming and tie-backs to make the fit very flattering. No buttons or zippers....so this is perfect for every level of sewing!
I chose view E and just left off the sleeves for a jumper style. I also liked the ties that start on the front of the dress on view C and opted for that version. I didn't make any other alterations and the fit is wonderful.
This pattern runs a little on the small side and is sized for a B cup fit. So if you are larger than a B cup you should choose the next largest size.
I am in the process of making 4 more of these darling jumpers and have taken some inspiration from the Victorian/Edwardian necklines and trim ideas....it should be interesting to see what I come up with!
Here is the fabric that I have chosen:
I hope that this will inspire you to dust off your sewing machine and make something for yourself. It is very rewarding, not to mention cost effective, to sew your own garments.
Yours so very kindredly,
