Here are the 2 jumpers I’ve finished this week. I plan to make a few more because they sew up pretty quick, they’re comfortable, cool and look better on me than a lot of other shapes I’ve tried. I’m happy to report that I made button holes for both jumpers and they turned out pretty good, as close to professional as I’ve ever come.
They both have gathered waists instead of pleated because they are intended to be casual and pleats are more formal than gathers. Also, I like gathers better than pleats, although I’ve pleated jumpers before and it’s not that hard to do. I thought of making a tie at the waist to better define it, but decided I liked it the way it was just fine. When I make other jumpers I’ll share them too, but it may be a few weeks yet.
Many thanks for all the encouragement with sewing. I find myself enjoying it a wee bit more when I get to play show and tell on my blog. 🙂
