Button Up Jumper Pattern Release + Discount Code
Today is the Button Up Jumper pattern release!
Rachel & Donna from Once Upon A Sewing Machine have made a fun play on a traditional jumper, with buttons at the waist. It’s designed to be worn with an undershirt, so it’s perfect for fall. I sewed the first round of pattern testing and it was still pretty warm outside; so we’re rockin’ the Button Up Jumper shirtless today.
The finished garment is really easy to wear. The dress doesn’t raise up when Sofie lifts her arms. The skirt doesn’t hinder climbing either. I’ve noticed that this kid doesn’t like wearing anything that restricts movement.
Sewists’s Kid Syndrome: an acute awareness of fabric type and garment fit that renders children extremely picky about clothing.
I recommend you stop by the Once Upon A Sewing Machine blog and read about it. (There are more tester photos coming later this week!) What impressed me during pattern testing was that each dress was dramatically different. I love that this dress works with medium and bottom weights- the broad range of fabric choices give you a lot of design flexibility.
I used a floral printed fine wale corduroy. I haven’t seen many girls dress patterns designed specifically for heavier fabric, so I’m really excited about the possibilities. I’d like to make a version out of a soft wool. It would make such a cute school dress!
