Floral Cord Jumper

I started making this little jumper two weeks ago, but had to set it aside until I found just the right ribbon for it.  The biggest problem — I knew exactly what I wanted, and couldn’t find it.  Then finally I found it!

This jumper was a modified version of ‘Jumper A’ from the Butterick pattern B4842.  It’s very fast to make.

I used a cute floral cordoroy that I picked up at Jo-Ann’s last fall.  I knew it would make a cute little jumper, but never got around to it.  Well, a year later, finally done.  The top half is lined with Kona cotton in dark brown.

The ribbon is a double sided velvet ribbon in brown.  Very beautiful, however, that bit of ribbon cost more than the fabric + zipper.  Ech!  Well, it does look good — especially with the little bow and it’s soooo soft!

The back was finished with an invisible zipper.  Turned out really well — don’t know if I’ve ever put in a better zipper in a dress that’s lined.

I’m so happy that Gwyneth really loved this new jumper!  She’s really excited to wear it to school to show her friends.
