Simplicity 1325

Can you tell I’m ready for Valentines Day?! Today I’m sharing this jumper that I made. I found a cut of this red corduroy as I was passing by the remnant table at my local fabric store. I knew immediately it needed to be a skirt or jumper. When I was browsing the Simplicity website on a Black Friday, I found this pattern in the sale section for only $5. I had planned on making this for Christmas and even had all the pieces cut out. I never found the time though and just sewed this together last week!

The top is lined and features a deep V. The skirt is a circle skirt cut on the bias so it flares out nicely. The pattern includes pockets but I didn’t have enough fabric and I didn’t think it needed them. I also switched the zipper to an invisible one instead of a lapped. The pattern included a longer version of this (I added a couple inches to the tunic version), a top, a jacket and a pair of pants as well. I haven’t decided if I’ll try any of the other patterns included but I definitely feel like I got my moneys worth!

I am very happy with how this turned out! Sometimes a pattern just works, you know? Everything lined up and stitched nicely. I think the fit is great, too! I recently bought a new petite dress form and I definitely think that helped. My old one was just too big for my measurements. I put it on my dress form several times throughout my sewing to make sure everything was going to fit.

I’m wearing a pin I made from a vintage valentine and some printable Shrinky Dink paper. I have two different designs and I just love them! I made them a few years ago and I always wear them throughout February. I am so glad January is over and I am looking forward to spring now. Here’s hoping that groundhog doesn’t see his shadow 😉
