Jump(er)ing for Joy
(Note: My kids do not think I'm witty either.)
I bought the fabric and pattern for this jumper four or five years ago. I was not sewing much at that time so I don't even remember why I decided to go to the fabric store. I cut out the "two hour" jumper several weeks ago but it has taken me three weeks to finish this easy piece. Actual time including cutting and hand sewing lining was probably 3-4 hours. I just haven't spent much time in the sewing room lately.
Pattern: McCalls 4199 (oop but available here and here on ebay.)
Fabric: who knows? Some moleskin polyester. I added a fringe trim on the front.
In addition to my typical blurry photo, here is a closeup of the fabric and front pleat.
This is a comfortable and casual outfit for work (with tights - I was too lazy to put them on for the photo.) I like that it has a mock wrap panel in the front - no flashing. I would definitely make this jumper again.
