Another project from the recent archives: jumpers! Seems like everyone I know has a toddler, the vast majority of which are girls. And is there anything cuter than a little girl in a jumper? I think not.

Making these was a ball. They were easy and fast, and because the pieces were fairly small I could mix and match smallish scraps of fabric I’ve been saving. The pattern (which I modified to include a seam along the back) was a free Burdastyle download. Unlike adult-sized downloadable patterns — which usually require about twenty pages to print and an hour to cut and assemble — this only required a handful of pages and came together quickly. Best part, I was able to upcycle about half the fabric, most of which came from thrifted bedsheets and Ikea curtains. Now that fall is almost here, it would be fun to throw together a few back-to-school outfits. Any girls out there who can fit into size 2T, you’ve got my number!
