Description

Simplicity 3673 – my mother-in-law requested this jumper and purchased the fabric in the fall of 2008. After accidentally cutting out half the fabric upside down I purchased a close-match fabric and was too-afraid to cut it out for a while, but finally overcome with guilt and with the MIL’s birthday approaching, I finally cut out it again and then sewed the whole thing up in one (long) day.

I merged two sizes to between the bust and hips and added 6 inches to the hem, but otherwise made no adjustments.

Can’t say the corduroy is my favorite to sew, but the dress turned out well and is a pretty good fit – though if requested I may make some slight adjustments to the back darts.

Material Notes

fine-wale corduroy in hunter green, light green poly lining, 22" zipper.
