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.
