Description

I made this last fall, but didn’t get great pictures until recently, so here it is! This is the Sabrina jumper, with an added hem to it because I cut it too short. I really like how it gives the skirt a bit more fullness. It’s a great dress to wear on slightly cooler days.

Material Notes

A thick, textured fabric I found at a vintage store—not sure what it is, but I love the colors.

    Did you double over the bias trim at the hem? Love the contrasting pattern.

      I did double it over, so it fully encases the raw edge. I think it looks a bit cleaner that way. :)

    Super cute. I agree, love the hem. I have done that many, many times too. I like how it contrasts.

    It’s really nice. Funny how the “mistakes” turn out to be the pathway to such wonderfulness.

      Thank you! It’s the Sabrina pattern—looks like it didn’t attach at first, but it’s there now!
