Two Jumpers make for a Wonderful Weekend!

Last weekend I took a whole day to myself! I had so much fun! I swore I was going to stay in my PJs all day. But I did chicken out, and got dressed. (What if someone came to the door?)

I managed to put together jumpers for two of my granddaughters, Sophie and Cassie. I did some knitting while watching two Lifetime Movies. It was wonderful, I have decided I need to do this more often.

The first jumper I made was for Sophie. I don’t know if other sewers do this but my sister and I are always swapping a material back and forth. I will see a piece in her stash that I can just imagine something in and I take it. She does the same with my stash. Well, we have been passing this particular piece of material back and forth for what seems like years. I could just picture a jumper made out of it but never got to it.

I am not sure what type of material it is, it has a little stretch to it and is heavier than cotton. It lays really nice and best of all will not need ironing.









I have had this pattern for awhile, when the first dress I tried to make was not working. I decided it was time to put that jumper together. The pattern is an Olabelhe Pattern called Jillian’s Jumper. I love her patterns.

I found a piece of fabric that was just right for the underskirt. So I was all set to go. I am really pleased with how it came out! We will see what Sophie says when she comes tonight.

Now for Cassie, I had bought this fabric awhile back not sure what I was going to do with it, it just called to me. I could have done the same pattern, but what fun is that. I decided to do a different Olabelhe Pattern, her Jenna’s Dress pattern. I decided not to put the big sash on it as I wanted a more school day jumper. I was a little bit disappointed in the length. It seems so short compared to other dresses I have made. Sorry, but the lighting wasn’t right for this picture. The material is lighter than it appears. We shall see tonight if the length is right…..
