Make this vintage mid-20th century jumper dress this holiday season! The pieced circle skirting creates a lovely chevron effect with a cozy winter flannel plaid. The jumper has a simple sleeveless bodice with dropped shoulders and fastens in the back with four buttons or snaps. Underneath the jumper is a delicate blouse with ¾ length puffed sleeves that are gathered with elastic just below the elbow. The blouse fastens in the back with three buttons or snaps and is finished with a trimmed Peter Pan collar and decorative bows. A simple belt provides the finishing touch.

As always with KDD, the pattern is clear and well illustrated, with attention to detail. I always feel with this designer’s patterns, that she is alongside me helping me to elevate my sewing. This is a versatile pattern too; the blouse can be used in many outfits, and the jumper could be made in a summery cotton as a dress on its own.
