Hillary's Happy Jumper Dress!

Added Mar 30, 2008

Portland, Maine,...






I have been eying the Sabrina pattern for some time now, and have finally done it! Only after starting another dress with this fabric did I see that it was so wrong for it, and it was meant to be for the Sabrina dress. I tore the other one apart and feverishly panicked about whether or not the pattern pieces would fit, especially because it is a plaid fabric. But since it was meant to be, it worked with the exception of the pockets! I only did buttons on the front of the dress because they were a tad expensive ;) And I purposely mismatched the plaid on the yoke to show the band going around. I am thrilled with how it turned out!

Material Notes

cotton seersucker-ish plaid

    This is adorable! You look great in it! I never thought I’d ever see a blue checked dress without wondering where the owner’s ruby slippers had got to! But you did it! This is beautiful! I love it with the red belt! Spectacular job!

    Great job, I love the buttons, and the belt is a perfect fit for that dress! Great job with matching and purposefully mismatching the paid!

    this is wonderful! i have GOT to make my sabrina now. i think i like it better without the pockets, it seems like they weigh the dress down. by the way, did you have any problems with the pattern? did you find it true to size? for once i want to make all my adjustments before i cut away :)

    This is so great :) I think you did an amzing job! Looks so good on you! I also like the Sabrina pattern, but actually I’m struggling with Danielle ;)

    That looks really cool! I also like the Sabrina pattern a lot, but it annoys me a little that you have to pay for it…
