3 Jumpers for 3 Sisters

by Jane Carlstrom on December 14, 2008 · 6 comments

in Vintage Sewing

Cotton/lycra corduroy, cotton lined bodice, snowflake waist corsage – attaches to button at waistline, vintage buttons. Modern sewing methods used. Serge finished skirt and waist seams. Altered patterns to hopefully fit the 3 sisters; lined the bodice rather than face with corduroy; extended front flap. Same pattern as this blue jumper posted in Oct 2008. That was the test, and after that one extended the front so there was more overlap.

Mostly I sew hats and accessories and lots of my own clothes. Like many others on sew retro I have a passion for patterns and sewing, thus the Etsy site as a way to fuel and share the passion. I also have a blog http://atranquilnook@blogspot.com You can also find me on facebook and flickr as A Tranquil Nook

These are so very clever. Well done you! I love the simplicity of the snow flake and the buttons are simply gorgeous. 3 very lucky sisters.

oh goodness this is so cute it gives me warm fuzzies. They are going to look so awesome in these.

(I predict dresses that they want to wear everyday, all day for way too many days in a row.)
