I wanted to share with you a very cute jumper pattern from Favorite Things....it is part of the Violets R Blue Collection ...
I really took a chance by ordering this pattern as it was $14.00, but I could not be more pleased. It is very simple to sew and the fit is exact (do keep in mind to use their measurement chart). The charming back tabs give the jumper a little shape, but it is not fitted...I wanted just that look.
So....here is yours truly.....
I used bias tape around the neck and armholes instead of the facings...unfortunately, it is black bias tape and does not show up against my black turtleneck. I think the bias tape gives the jumper a very vintage look.
(Do forgive the hat, but it is such a blustery day and Dearest and I have errands to attend to in town.)
Simple little black buttons adorn the front and I have two buttons on the tab in back (I just couldn't get a good picture of them...sorry). Now, this is among the first of the jumpers I made and I was quite simple in my adornments....but fear not Dear Reader, I am working on a few right now that are loaded with trim and buttons and such. I am determined to add Victorian/Edwardian elegance to my daily clothing, without looking like I am in a play!
I am ready to step out-of-doors and enjoy the day! (Coat was a thrift store find and I just love the velvet collar and cuffs.)
Yours so kindredly,
