I used this vintage pattern….
(sorry for the crappy picture–the pattern itself has a super fuzzy image)
to make this vintage jumper.
I found this vintage 1950’s fabric panel at an estate sale last summer–and fell in love with it. I had been holding/ hoarding it for a year, until I spied this pattern and thought that it would be darling together. I had some green fabric (binding left over from the Doll quilts), turquoise piping that matched perfectly….and some darling green vintage buttons that worked too.
I also added some white ric rac to the bottom to mimic the wavy lines on the panel, and I really love it.
The scene on the bottom is my favorite part. The pattern itself was a size 4 but it is still a bit wide for my little girlie ….which I am actually kind of excited about because she can wear it next year too. Yippee for two summers of cute vintageness!
Lesson of the day: Do Not Be Afraid to cut your vintage fabric. It looks so much cuter as a jumper than a panel.
