Butterick 2466, a jumper for autumn

in 1940s

I wanted to complete something quick and simple for the sudden onset of autumn we received here, in the Pacific Northwest. This pattern was fast to sew and is very easy to wear! The material is a vintage cotton blend and is densely woven to create a warm yet soft texture. I will definitely wear this a lot during this season! I just love the gathered skirt and usable pockets…

Feel free to stop by here, for more pictures and details on the project!

Lovely! the plaid and navy shirt work well together. I’m planning some 60s style jumpers for autumn (spring is only just arrived in Australia) so i cant wait to make them – and wear them!
