Description

I really enjoyed using the Jumper Dress pattern as a starting point for the Vintage Modern Design Challenge. The pattern gives you the basic formula needed to create an a-line dress, and from there you can improvise with different design elements depending on the look you want.

The look I was going for here was a vintage lace shift dress with contrast piping and collar. So I started with white lace fabric since I did not find any cream colored lace, and a basic cotton sheeting for lining . Next I tea-dyed my lace fabric and lining, using about eight cups of brewed ceylon tea. The biggest modification I made to the original pattern was bringing in the side seams slightly to minimize the a-line shape.

This dress was made from the Indygo Junction Jumper Dress pattern available here: http://www.indygojunction.com/marketing/PDF/SlipOnJumper_epattern.pdf
