Summer Jumper: Take Two

I decided to give the jumper another try. I wanted to simplify the pattern. I know, it doesn't look more simple, but it is. It is also wonderfully scrappy.

Five different fabrics were used to put this cute little dress together.

That was pretty much my project for the week (I don't count socks as a project since I knit while I watch television). Now, I'm off to make some more bags.

Summer Jumper

I wanted to make something that would make up quickly and was easy. I found this cute pattern at Burda Style and decided to take a stab at it.

Making little clothes, but not too little, is very satisfying.

The pattern says it will fit a 2T, but it has been so long since I've shopped for sizes that small that I have no real idea what that means. Well, I know it won't fit me.

I can tell you that the chest measurement is 24" and the length from shoulder to hem is all of 17.5". Now, I just need to find a toddler to wear it.

Created from pre-washed, 100% cotton fabric. Fully lined in a coordinating solid.

I think it's pretty cute.

I think I'll have to come up with my own pattern. Something that has more options for adding in several different fabrics. Scrappy is the best way to go.

Yesterday, I finally got around to opening that shop. The link is at the right of the page and on my Facebook profile.

Here are some quick pics.
