Hi all! Here Ilse from @sewsewilse.
Today I want to show you my ‘Lucky Girl jumper’! I know EAM has already a few gorgeous jumper patterns in her collection, but because I love the Lucky Girl top so much, I used it for a new creation.Actually I’m doing a mash-up with the Lucky Girl top and the Cold Shoulder Jumper. I know, actually I could also use the open shoulders of the Cold Shoulder Jumper, but I thought the top of the Lucky Girl was just a little bit more fancy to wear in school. (Because I'm a teacher)
I've used rust colors several times, but I don't think I made a salmon colored item yet. I like this jersey with dark blue waves and matching border fabric and it's ideal for my project. I bought it online at Senza Limits. It’s a Dutch webshop which sells modern and quality fabrics.
Are you curious how I did it?
- First of all I printed the top part from the Lucky Girl pattern. I had to shorten my Lucky Girl top so the bottom would hit my natural waist. I used the lengthen/shorten line to do it. My new length from my armpit to the bottom was 12.4”.
- As I wanted to make the banded sleeve I cut off the tie from the sleeve pattern piece.
- Secondly I printed the skirt part from the Cold Shoulder Jumper. I had to compare the circumference of the bottom of my top and skirt part. Luckily this corresponded well. I also added 1.5” to the bottom of the skirt by cutting the pattern at the lengthen/shorten line and then spreading it out 1.5”. On the photo you can see how I blended the side gradually.
- After this I just followed the instructions of the Cold Shoulder pattern to add eyelets before I would assemble the top and skirt part. In the tunnel I added both elastic and a cord.
I’m very happy with the result and next time I certainly will add pockets.
