Autumn is coming, and this back-to-school jumper brings to mind the smell of burning fall leaves and crisp apples. This classic jumper and blouse comes in two variations.
View A jumper has a square neckline and the bodice is fully lined with a contrasting lining. The blouse has a peter pan collar with a front tab and long sleeves. The jumper is tailored with a box pleat.
View B has a V-neckline and a lined bodice. The blouse has a puff sleeve with a cuff, and a peter pan collar. The jumper has an inverted pleat in the center. Both jumpers have a waistband that is cut on the bias for a perfect fit.

I was asked by St. Pious in Erlanger Ky. to make two school uniforms for 18" dolls that they are auctioning off at their festival. I looked everywhere for a pattern that was similar to the uniform my granddaughter wore. I found this pattern. I loved the blouse and the skirt part of the uniform. I did have to refigure the bodice because my granddaughters uniform was open on the sides to the belt area. Thankfully I was able to figure it out using the bodice pattern by redrawing it to eliminate the sides. After adding to the bodice to the skirt, I had the opening on one of the sides of the skirt on the left just like the real uniforms. One of my favorite parts of this pattern is the school bag. It was the perfect addition to the outfits I made along with a scrunchie with bow. I ended up making three uniform sets so the my granddaughter could have one too. I wish I could post a picture of the finished outfit.
A friend wanted me to make a uniform for a doll to match her daughter's school uniform. She gave me one of her daughter's uniforms for the material. This pattern is almost identical. Directions could be made more clear for a "beginner sewer".
Unfortunately haven't got round to using it yet but have read the instructions and they are nice and easy to follow can't wait to use the fabric in my stash to make these lovely things, I've got some ditsy tartan for the pinafore and some very fine white calico for the blouse
Love the pattern and how easy it was to make the dress! Turned out beatifully!
I love the blouse - reminds me of ones I had in the 50s/60s. I've made two of them so far!
