The stripwork jumper is a sweet boutique favorite. With a simple bib-style bodice and a skirt pieced from vertical strips, the design possibilities are endless. A long, flowing jumper looks beautifully old-fashioned and romantic, and is perfect for wearing over a frilly top or peasant dress. A shorter, top-length jumper is adorably perky and "twirly." For a dressy set, pair with matching ruffled pants. For a more casual look, combine with a cute T-shirt and embellished jeans. The jumper bodice makes a great canvas for applique or machine embroidery.

This eBook contains the patterns and instructions to make a sweet stripwork jumper in sizes 6 months - 8 years. Instructions are also provided for making a jumper with a solid skirt. Detailed sizing information is given so you will get a great fit and just the length you are after. As a bonus, matching dolly-sized patterns are provided in a supplemental file.

The patterns have placement guides for buttons and buttonholes. Depending on your sewing machine and comfort level with making buttonholes, you may prefer to use snaps or tacking. Instructions are given for all three fastening methods.

- 28 pages of instruction
- Full size pattern pieces
- Over 100 detailed professional graphics demonstrating each step

*Note: These are downloadable instructions for making a stripwork jumper. This Ebook does include pattern pieces for the top of the jumper and for the doll clothes. Since it is a download, you will receive this by email and it will also be located in the "My Library" section of your user account immediately after purchase.

This is a fabulous pattern! It's very east to understand and make your dress from. I have used it many times and it's pretty versatile (make it a shirt or dress). I can't wait to try the doll version of it, too!

Love it! This was the first pattern I bought when I was first teaching myself to sew, it was perfect for a beginner. Now that I've been sewing a few years, I still go back to the stripwork jumper, it's just so versatile!

I love this pattern and consider this and the simply sweet my "go to" patterns when I was a cute dress- fast! In fact, I signed on tonight to go to my Library and print out the size I need to whip one up tomorrow! Its adorable in strip work or solid skirt, her patterns set the bar for detail, photographs. Like a good map- if you follow her directions step by step- ANY sewing level can do it. This is no commercial pattern where your left guessing. These patterns are made for the busy Mom, new sewer in mind, but offer lots of options for advanced, the bodice offers a space for embroidery. I LOVE how my daughter can wear this with a blouse, or turtleneck in cold weather and on its own in summer months. I also think its amusing that the sweet shin length dress I made for my 3.5yr old, still works at 5.5yrs! Carla, I love your patterns and always suggest to every new sewer to come to YCMT and buy your patterns! You get people hooked on sewing like no one can!

Carla C does it again! What an amazing pattern! The possibilities for this pattern are ENDLESS!! - I have made over 20 dresses using this pattrn, an every one is OOAK - How's that for value for money:o) A beginner should not fear this pattern (or any of Carla's) as the instructions are immensely thorough, well written and contain all the small details that could easily be overlooked - A truly awespme pattern!

How to make a Stripwork Jumper for Dolly and Me was an absolutely wonderful ebook. I used it to make an outfit for cute little Grace and also for my own three year old Mia. I will use this pattern many times in the future. I love that it can be a dress, shirt, or jeans outfit. I will by from this author again!

I totally love this e-book!! I finished a jumper dress for my angel yesterday, and she loves it. She wore it yesterday after I made it and insisted on wearing it again today. The steps were so easy to follow. I've already started on a second dress and bought more fabric for two more. Thanks for such an awesome e-book!!

I bought this ebook as my Christmas gift and decided to try it out right away! I have made many blankets and quilts, but this was the first time I've ever attempted something like this. This ebook was FANTASTIC! The pictures and instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I can't wait to make my next one. My 2 year old loves her dress - she wore it on Christmas eve and we got many compliments on it. Thanks so much!

This e-book is wonderful, although when I bought this last year it was very hard for me to make the dress. It was the first time I had tried to make a dress like this. But now a year later I am making about 2 a month with ease. I would say this is not for a first timer, but you will slowly learn how to make these.

I love this pattern! I haven't been sewing very long and was able to make this dress in about 2 hours (and that was with a 1 & 2 yr old tugging at me the entire time). I'm amazed at how adorable this turned out, professional looking on my first try! I've made Halloween dresses for my girls, Christmas dresses and I'm working their Easter dresses and it's not even Mid-October yet! I loooooooooove this pattern, thanks!!!

by Dana Street

I made this dress last week after being inspired by the color combination of another's dress photo here! It was very easy and I love that there are full-sized patterns included for each size! The bodice is perfect for embroidery. I also like that there are options for those who may not be comfortable making buttonholes. Options are good! I'll be making this again in the near future!
