Retro Jumper

I finally am getting around to posting pictures of the Jumper I made before I made the S & S Romantic blouse to go with it. It is a Simplicity retro pattern. Before I cut anything I lengthened the bodice an inch, straightened the front darts and shortened the back darts. It fit amazingly well. I am getting pretty good at this fitting thing if I don't say so myself. ahem ahem. The only thing I needed to adjust was some how I got the bodice lining smaller than the bodice so I turned the lining into facing during breakfast the morning I wore it the first time. I also need to trim the front of the arm hole as it was too small to move freely and work in. I had enough fabric left over to make a dress for T. She is tall and keeps growing out of things. I put a 5 inch hem in her dress so it will last for a long time. She told J that she looked like Christine (from Phantom of the Opera).

Sorry the pictures aren't the best. My photographers in training aren't well read in digital camera settings.

How nice you both look. The jumper, blouse and dress all look great! My little one has been wanting matching Mommy/daughter outfits for while, now you have inspired me!
