WIP: The Jumper Pattern

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Have you been asking yourself that lately, “What’s up with the jumper pattern?” In addition to the question “who am I?”, I ask this question every day.

The answer is it’s coming along. Ā I learned a huge lesson on sizing when I created my first pattern so I’m taking extra steps to ensure that this one fits many sizes, not just your children. Using the pattern for the jumper that Becky wore as a template, I made a few changes to it so that it would fit a variety of sizes (example: adding more shape in the hips, moving the bust darts, reshaping the front and back neckline). I fit that pattern on a fit model at work, who wears a size 6 (or small) in RTW, and then altered the pattern accordingly. The jumper you see in the photo above is the final fit sample/toile. Why didn’t I use muslin for the fabric? Because why they hell shouldn’t you use a cute fabric during the fitting process?

So onto grading I go. I’ve had and still have a few big projects that I’ve been working on since Amerson came out but those are coming to an end, which means I will be in full on jumper-pattern-mode for the next month or so. Ā I’m projecting a mid June/early July release date. Excited?
