North Caldwell, ...
I used the free Slip-On Jumper Dress ePattern from Indygo Junction for this entry in to the Vintage Modern Design Challenge. I made the sleeve cuffs extra long, the pockets a bit deeper, curved the neckline at center front, and made it in to a coat with an open front. I also used a contrasting cotton fabric for the sleeves, pockets, and belt since bold patterns are all over the runways and streets right now!
I loved this contest and seeing everyone’s wonderful entries! Good luck everyone!
PS: Apologies for not wearing it myself in the photos – I’m a bit pregnant!
Cotton, wool/linen blend, and both cotton & polyester thread.
