It took me long enough! As of yesterday, Katya’s jumper was in the state which I last informed you of–no buttons, button holes, or piping. But I wanted it for her to wear to a program at school, so I mowed through, from breakfast to midnight. I didn’t go to sleep ’till about 1 am. Boy!
As to how I figured things out, sometimes my brain is like a computer: try to get it to do too many things at once, and it freezes. It usually takes a few days, or weeks, for my brain to finish loading. It all sifted into place during nights.
Front view, standing. Aren’t those gores lovely? I used the narrowest width shown on the pattern, and the hem still took nearly 4 yds of bias-tape!
The gore patterns are from Sew Beautiful, issue NO. 129, 2010.
The bodice is from McCall’s 4247, view D.
Front detail. I like that I had large buttons from the stash, purchased once on a clearance sale, for the straps, and….
small buttons for the back. I figured out how to do a better placket. :)
So what did you think?
Did my concept sketch turn out?
