Jumper for the little one

This little thing was a pain in the ass to design/figure out. But it’s so cute on her, I’m over it.

This is the first in a line of items I hope to sell. Though, I am no longer feeling optimistic about that idea. It was super difficult to figure out how long/short to make everything. I ended up cutting about 3 inches from it after stitching the top and bottom together and the two halves were not the same size despite my careful measuring….annoying.

These ties are not quite right either…they are too long and a little too thick. I am pleased with the elastic waist application and the overall fit (after all of the altering….)

Material Notes

cotton shirting, elastic




Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual

      Thank you!! She was so excited it was actually done after I had her try it on about a dozen times while making it ;o)

    OH MY _ I don’t think that anyone could get more squeezable. She is a cut-tie. SO CUTE! I love the jumper shape and I agree about the topstitching, love it on the ties, waist etc, makes it look so super cute.

    And how about telling us the secrets of the pattern? It’ so cute! (I still hope you can sell it-to those who can’t sew! ;) )

      The pattern was easy to conceptualize, but hard to fit in terms of how long to make the top portion and the top part of the shorts portion. Because I hope to sell these, I have to figure out how best to guesstimate this without the recipient there.

    Very cute. I think this design would be a good seller. I like the topstitching on the ties.

      Thanks! I always second guess contrasting top stitching.
