I love the way this jumper turned out, although I had some difficulty getting the fit right. According to the Burda size chart, my hips say I’m a size 40. Well, the 40 was huge on me. I’m really more like a 36. So I had to take it in quite a bit. I should have known to make the top part in a smaller size, because my measurements indicate I am a size 36 top. But I didn’t, so I ended up having to improvise some methods to get the top to fit. That’s why I have the three buttons in the front, and why they are arranged in a triangle instead of a straight line.
I neglected to put the slit in front and so far am not really regretting it. I also took liberties with the arrangement of buttons on the back. Finally, I did not understand the pocket instructions and so ended up just kind of winging it. They turned out fine.
