If only I had the time, I’d make these dresses in every color that this pattern line comes in – I especially love the red, teal, and lime. I made the skirts a little longer, but otherwise followed the pattern dimensions, and they fit my almost 8-year-old and 10-year-old perfectly.
The directions were clear and well-written, and I had no problem with the simple sewing skills, including pleating, an elastic band, buttonholes, and sewing the bodice to the skirt. The lack of sleeves made the project that much easier, but it took a while to put together the pleats on the skirts.
The buttons are handmade ceramic from Jennie the Potter – I’ve had them for a while, and they ended up being the perfect size and color matches for these jumpers.Pin It
