The stripwork jumper is a sweet boutique favorite. With a simple bib-style bodice and a skirt pieced from vertical strips, the design possibilities are endless. A long, flowing jumper looks beautifully old-fashioned and romantic, and is perfect for wearing over a frilly top or peasant dress. A shorter, top-length jumper is adorably perky and "twirly." For a dressy set, pair with matching ruffled pants. For a more casual look, combine with a cute T-shirt and embellished jeans. The jumper bodice makes a great canvas for applique or machine embroidery.
This eBook contains the patterns and instructions to make a sweet stripwork jumper in sizes 6 months - 8 years. Instructions are also provided for making a jumper with a solid skirt. Detailed sizing information is given so you will get a great fit and just the length you are after. As a bonus, matching dolly-sized patterns are provided in a supplemental file.
The patterns have placement guides for buttons and buttonholes. Depending on your sewing machine and comfort level with making buttonholes, you may prefer to use snaps or tacking. Instructions are given for all three fastening methods.
