Fall is in the air, but that won't stop me from wearing this jumper. No way! The days are warm and the nights are chilly. Jumpers are a great seasonal transition piece. Add a sweater and some chucks, and you're set.
This is half sew along and half review. It's not a complete step by step. Hopefully you'll get some useful info out of it though.
Most of the summer was spent enjoying beautiful weather, great friends, resort pools, and camping.
My friend stayed with us for a week and we squeezed in some sewing time. And, the jumper was finished at another friends house while I visited her. Ha!! Yes, having sewing friends in real life is amazing. #findyourtribe
Grab the New Look Pattern 6446. You won't regret it! There are tons of tutorials on this pattern online and You Tube.
I chose to use this fabric that I've had since 2015. Yikes!
I bought 3 yards at Joann fabrics in the clearance section. It's an extremely soft, thick knit. I used a 16" invisible zipper and coordinating white thread.
I used my high bust measurement for the bodice. My waist measurement almost always gets blended out because I'm not a wasp. I used size 14 for the top and blended out to a size 16 for the waist, and back down to 14 for the hips. This worked well for me.
The pockets were easy to make. It's a one piece, pattern piece that you fold together and sew into the waist area.
Anyone else get excited over a perfect crotch seam? LOL
Sew up the pant legs following the pattern directions. Inseam first, then outer legs.
Tuck the bodice inside the pant legs at the waist, right sides together. I used clips and they seemed to hold all the layers more easily.
I've worn this a few times already, it washes up beautifully and it's so comfy to wear. I need to get yards and yards of fabric to make 20 more of these! Ha!!

Hi there, I'm Annette and I love eating and sewing. I usually have a cup of coffee or tea with me, but not next to my machine because I'd probably spill it. I am the reason we can't have nice things.
