Description

Finally! I have completed my daughter’s school uniform wardrobe.

I used Project Runways Simplicity 2574, and I made two jumpers out of navy stretch twill.

The pattern is very thorough, which threw me for a loop. I guess I was expecting these to sew up much faster. Because of this, I sort of lost my sewing mojo and really dragged my feet when sewing them. I was worried they wouldn’t turn out… but in the end, both jumpers turned out surprisingly well!

Now my daughter has been been wearing these jumpers every day for the past two weeks! They fit her perfectly, and she is able to layer shirts underneath quite comfortably. The best part was being able to customize the length, as school dress code requires skirts fall beneath the knee.

I’m so pleased with the pattern and the fabric— they don’t scream “homemade”, which is a bonus.

If you’ve ever considered sewing school uniforms, I highly recommend this pattern!

    your girl and the jumper are adorable. I LOVE the glasses she’s wearing in the first pic – stylishly nerdy. ;-)
