Today is the Button Up Jumper pattern release!

Button Up Jumper Pattern by OUSM | SewsNBows

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.

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!

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    cute jumper Amy and i love that you sewed it up in corduroy!! it definitely looks kid friendly with an easy on/off, pockets, and no climbing restrictions! one of the things i love about sewing is how many people can take the same pattern and make it look different with fabric choices and embellishments. Have a great weekend!!!

    Love your choice of fabrics. I am in love with the baby wale cord for little girls. Thanks for being such a great tester!

    i LOVE your fabric choice, such a pretty corduroy! Did you make the front buttons hidden? I agree, this pattern has so many possibilities!

      I omitted the front buttons and used the 2 back buttons. I’m not sure if it would work in every size, but in the size 3 on Sophia it slips over her head pretty easily. Later we can open the back buttons if we need to in order to slip it on and off. This was a modification requested by Sofie’s mom- because she picks at buttons and pulls on them. Since the bodice is totally seamless inside, I hand stitched it, then top stitched the waistband.
