A jumper dress in discount fabric with recycled bed-sheet piping, contract hem band and under bust contrast belt. This was a test run for a dress I want to make for Easter. I wanted to make sure the pattern fit correctly before using the “good” material and this turned out to be wearable. I removed the flutter sleeves and added piping around the armholes and neckline. I also added a bias-cut contrast band hem around the bottom and made a contrast belt with a flat bow in the back. Belt is tacked to dress at the side seams and held closed by a button at the back.
Discount plaid fabric of unknown fiber content, left over bed sheet from making curtains for a prior residence.
Simplicity for the original pattern & the awesome how-to on making piping.
