B5886 + B5893 Mashup !!



I am so happy with how this jumper turned out !!!!! I have to admit ..when I set out to make this I was very apprehensive about how it would turn out .

If your familiar with patterns you know that there aren\’t many out there in the way of jumpers to choose from …. So I had to improvise …

I knew that I wanted a halter top dress … But I didn\’t want my back out ( I try to make most of my clothes \”work friendly\” ) . I knew I wouldn\’t find a jumper pattern to match what I wanted so I decided to do a PATTERN MASHUP !!!

I went with these two patterns!!

The dress pattern had the top I wanted and the pants pattern had the wide leg look that I was going for .


The pants portion was fairly easy , I finished the pants all the way till it was time to add the band and then I began making the halter top portion of the dress. I ended up having to change the zipper because in the pattern it added it on the side , because of the pockets this option wouldn\’t work . I decided to moved the zipper to the back .



The pattern only called to cut one waist band but I knew this wouldn\’t work so I cut two . I ended up having to cut the waistband down to fit the bodice portion and attached it . Once I connected the band to the bodice I began work on the pants .



The pants where slightly larger than the waist band so I added two darts on each side ( front and back ) . I attached the pants to the waist band, added a hem to the pants leg and that was it !!!

I will definitely be doing more if these !!

I think next time ill make it a size smaller with a tapered skinny leg !!
